Subject:RE: prevention programs aimed at fathers

There is a father’s program called POSSE, offered through Parents Anonymous® of New Jersey, Inc. Contact Donny Bellamy at dbells56@aol.com for more information. I believe it is based on the evidence-based Parents Anonymous® model of parent mutual support. Peggy Margaret (Peggy) L.

I’d recommend checking out three websites to start: 1. The Child Welfare Information Gateway has a Fatherhood Resources Section (http://www.childwelfare.gov/preventing/promoting/fatherhood.cfm) that may be useful. 2. The National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse’s [NRFC] website (www.fatherhood.gov) is focused on fatherhood resources and materials and has a fairly extensive and easy to use online library. 3. The Welfare Peer TA Network’s website (http://peerta.acf.hhs.gov/) may be of use. Particularly the Welfare Resources – Healthy Families section, or the the What’s New section. Here are some other resources that you might find helpful from the NRFC. OCSE responsible fatherhood programs : client characteristics and program outcomes.(2003) What About Dads?: Child Welfare Agencies' Efforts to Identify, Locate and Involve Nonresident Fathers (PDF - 821 KB) - U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation, Office of Human Services Policy and Administration for Children and Families Administration on Children, Youth and Families Children's Bureau. Family structure, father closeness, and drug abuse : a report from the National Fatherhood Initiative. (2004) A program evaluation of five TANF-funded responsible fatherhood programs in Florida - Ounce of Protection Fund of Florida. Florida's Commission on Responsible Fatherhood, in partnership with Workforce Florida, Inc., administered five locally based programs under a model called Equipping Parents to Strengthen Families. Also, if you’re looking for state specific information, the NRFC’s State Profiles might be helpful (State Profiles ). We’re currently working on finishing updates on each state, so if the one you’re interested isn’t there, please feel free to contact us. Thanks!
