Caring Dads

This unique 12-week group allows men to connect with each other as fathers. Men learn to cope in healthy ways when faced with frustrating situations and understand how their fathering choices have an effect on their children. They also learn how to strengthen their relationship with their children. Any dad in the community who wants to improve his relationship with his children is welcome to attend.
