CIF's Feature Story: Father Engagement Program April 2016
The April 2016 Feature Story is on the Father Engagement Program. The Father Engagement Program, supported in part through a grant from the Community Initiatives Fund, is a novel and needed program for fathers who seek help and information on parenting. It was organized in La Ronge, not only to provide assistance to fathers, but also to create an opportunity for fathers to find common ground with other fathers in the area who may have similar issues. Along with home based services, every second Wednesday evening, fathers can gather to share their experience and ideas about parenting, as well as work on social and communication skills. “Our goal is to ensure that fathers feel like they are not just ‘the other parent,’ but that they are an important part of their child’s life” shared Maykel Llorente-Gonzalez, Program Coordinator of the Father Engagement Program.
