Fatherhood Initiative Program

The Community Action Southwest Family Development Program is offering fathers an opportunity to enhance their children’s future.  The Fatherhood Initiative aims to improve the well-being of children by enhancing the involvement, responsibility and commitment of fathers.  Through participation in the program the father will discover that you he is the child’s first and most important teacher. 
Your children will have countless influences throughout their lives.  The Fatherhood Initiative will help assure that your influence is positive, lasting and significant.  The program aims to strengthen the institution of fatherhood and will empower fathers to become ever more responsible, committed and loving role models to their children. 
As children benefit from the increased positive involvement of their fathers, our community will in turn, gain strength.  Fathers will have the opportunity to experience
  • Mentoring
  • Personal Value Development
  • Anger Management
  • Limit Setting
  • Problem Solving
Services will be delivered through:
  • Weekly Meetings
  • Home Visitation
  • One-On-One Support
  • Connections to other community resources
The Fatherhood Initiative is FREE, confidential and open to all in Greene County.
The Family Development Fatherhood Initiative Program is administered by Community Action Southwest.
