What We Offer
Numerous studies have shown that when fathers are a presence in their child’s life, the impact can be significant in terms of early development, academic achievement, and the overall well-being of the child. A father’s support can make a big difference even before their baby is born.
Researchers have found that when a father is involved before birth, his presence can potentially lower the risk of infant mortality in the first year of life. The influence is particularly relevant for African American babies.
