Meeting The Needs Of Fathers

Fathers and Family Network

Each month, Family Services hosts a “Fathers and Family Network” workshop for Greater Lawrence professionals who work with fathers. The group helps professionals enhance skills, learn new strategies for engaging fathers, and increase knowledge about issues unique to fathers.  In addition, the group helps raise greater public awareness of the important role that fathers play in the well-being of their families.   The Fathers and Family Network is generously funded by The Children’s Trust.

  • NEXT MEETING: Thursday, October 21, 2021, 10:00 a.m.  Our speaker is Kari Adamsons. Ms. Adamsons, an Associate Professor in the Department of Human Development and Family Sciences at the University of Connecticut, will be presenting on Fatherhood, Masculinity, and the #MeToo Movement.  This workshop will include topics on healthy models of masculinity, respect, and how to pass these on to children.
