Fatherhood Task Force of South Florida
of Private Matching Funds Remaining
The Fatherhood Task Force of South Florida's mission is to facilitate the involvement of fathers in children's lives and to eliminate the barriers preventing fathers engagement. We stress the inclusion of father strengthening programs in organizations as essential to building healthy families and securing the well-being of chiildren. We seek funding for our Neighborhood Dads Book to be dispersed to schools and fathers to increase father involvement in the academic and social lives of children, Paternal Health Care & Education and Birth of the Father work focused on future, expectant and dads' health and education as they affect birth outcomes and children's development, and Magic of the Brain classes which stresses fathers importance as children's first educator and advocate. We welcome books for our Fatherhood Reading Squad program and funding to increase our Train the Trainer Fatherhood Reading Squad Mentoring program to deliver to Head Start Centers and MDCPS. The Fatherhood Task Force would like to increase its Fatherhood Facilitation Support Groups to identify new leaders in the field who can assist other fathers with their life skills and parenting relationships.
