IMPACT FATHER-HOOD PROGRAM

is a program established for non-household fathers and their children that reside in Genesee County and the surrounding areas. IMPACT is designed to combat the appalling plague of the effects of fatherlessness on children in Flint. Historically, children who face fatherlessness have an increased disadvantage in all areas of childhood including, but not limited to: 

 

financial sustainability, food insecurity, education levels, inclination to drug activity, teenage pregnancy, and are twice as likely to drop out of high school. 

 

In the IMPACTprogram,

  • fathers attend a series of bi-weekly workshops for 7 months where they learn effective parenting and successful life skills enabling them to engage their child(ren) and develop healthy socialization skills. 

  • They will attend one session per month without their child(ren) and one with their child(ren) accompanying them. In the sessions without the child(ren), 

  • facilitators will teach well-designed parenting techniques and successful life skills, as well as facilitate discussion topics.  In the sessions with their child(ren), 

  • facilitators provide a safe place for open dialogue and demonstrate skills necessary to connect with the child(ren). 

  • Fathers are assisted with employment preparation and leads, child support rears, legal matters surrounding child support, custody and parenting time orders .

This newly defined connection strengthens intergenerational relationships. Outside activities are also assigned for the father and child(ren) to experience together, thereby increasing the relationship and IMPACTing the life of the child(ren). The program will take place over an 8-month timeframe and we will service 25 fathers and their child(ren). Contact us today to see if you qualify for our services.
