Strong Dads is an early father engagement program designed for families with children from birth to age five. The Strong Dads program encourages and equips fathers and father figures to promote their children’s physical, social, emotional and mental development. A dad who plays, reads, talks and cares today, supports his child’s well-being now and throughout the child’s life.
