Promoting Responsible Fatherhood


The ultimate goal of this grant is to improve the well-being of children by building community access across Colorado to fatherhood programs and services. This will be accomplished through the following primary objective:

Strengthen and increase the involvement and parenting / relationship skills of fathers of at risk children through community based direct services. Fathers of children who are at risk of negative outcomes due to limited father involvement and limited economic support are the target population of this grant. These include children whose fathers are low-income, teenage parents, fathers of children with disabilities, single custodial parents, non-residential fathers, and families receiving child protective services.
