Fundamentals of Fatherhood Program

The program works to improve father child bonding, co-parenting, economic stability and mobility. It offers Life Coaching, the Nurturing Fathers parenting program in 10 weekly sessions and employment development. Our employment services are available not only to our fathers, but also their partners and adult children. Fathers that can attend program services and activities in Long Beach and reside in Service Planning Area 8 are welcomed to enroll. We also offer a twice-monthly support group, open to all fathers and father-figures, called the Fatherhood in Action Network which allows a space for fathers to get support and build community. All services are FREE and offered in English and Spanish.

Benefits of the Program

  • Improve child father bonding and co-parenting
  • Improve economic and financial stability
  • Increase sense of community
