The Commission Feels Grounded and Better Prepared to Engage Fathers After Training

The Strong Families Commission, an advocate for Fathers within the lives of Children and Families is pleased to have successfully completed the National Fatherhood Initiative's online sessions and examination on the topic of Father Engagement.

This training will be very helpful in legitimatizing the Approach used by the Commission to work with Fathers and to build strong viviable child and family well-being programming that is inclusive of Fathers.
