Hundley Foundation Fatherhood Program

The presence of a nurturing and attentive father has a profound impact on the health and well-being of a child. But, becoming a responsible father is not easy, especially if you did not have a positive male role model growing up.

This is why the Hundley Foundation created the Hundley Fatherhood Program at Eisner Health. It is a FREE and CONFIDENTIAL 12-week program for fathers, stepfathers, relative caregivers and foster parents of children of any age. During this class,  you will meet other dads, learn how to communicate with your children, appropriate activities and community resources available to you and your kids.

There is a new session in English or Spanish starting every three months.
