The Fatherhood Initiative

The Exodus Fatherhood Initiative helps our participants meet these challenges through the Urban Dads Involved Program. This weekly, 12-session series of trainings and exercises helps participants strengthen family ties, improve the quality of children’s’ lives and begin to develop a positive, non-competitive relationship with the custodial parent. Our program utilizes guest speakers trained in the area of custodial rights and child support. Participants are taught to weigh various alternatives and consider asking for guidance before choosing a certain course of conduct. This allows them to develop a thought-out approach to parenting, and helps them increase their level of confidence in their own parenting skills.
