Do you want to talk with other fathers about being a parent? Do you need help with co-parenting, custody, or finding a job?

You have come to the right place! Focus on Fathers helps dads develop and maintain healthy involvement in their children’s lives. We believe that all participants deserve compassion, empathy and a chance to restart their legacy!

Our course is offered free for any Philadelphia fathers and male caregivers with a child aged 24 or younger. Course sessions take place twice a week for 7 weeks. All sessions are currently held online. If you have access to a smart phone or a computer/laptop, you can participate. There are also a number of incentives for participating.

The topics we cover are parental roles, positive discipline, co-parenting, custody and child support, managing conflict and positive communication, men’s health and the importance of employment. We also connect fathers to:

  • Work readiness assistance and job opportunities
  • Custody and child support guidance
  • Financial management sessions
  • COVID-19 and other resources

Additionally, we can help you access PHMC’s programs in areas such as primary health care, behavioral health including addiction services, workforce development and other services.

Every situation and every father is different. Our job is to provide services tailored to your needs and to help you achieve your goals.

If you’re ready to enroll in our program yourself or would like to refer a father you know, please complete this short referral survey and we will be in touch within 2 business days.
