What dads are saying:
"I've learned more from these classes than I learned in 33 years of living about being a man, owning up to responsibilities, and just being a dad. Being a dad is a wonderful thing when you really know what being a dad is all about. The 24/7 Dad™ program can teach you what being a dad is really all about." William, Father of 3 Baldwin County Fatherhood Initiative (Bay Minette, AL)

"The thing that I learned since I've been in the 24/7 Dad™ program is self worth, self-esteem, and self-concept. This is a new concept to me. I am thankful for everything and I really learned a lot…Those who don't know should know about the 24/7 Dad™ program. I know for myself, it will give you a new outlook on yourself, and [help you] become a real dad." Father of 8 Baldwin County Fatherhood Initiative (Bay Minnette, AL)
