Fatherhood Involvement (24/7 DAD)


Healthier Generations Logo

 

  Dads with Kids

Clayton County Board of Health (CCBOH)/ Healthier Generations Project (HGP) was awarded the HRSA Healthy Start grant in 2013 which includes deliverables around fatherhood involvement. HGP utilizes the 24/7 DAD curriculum to engage, educate and encourge fatherhood involvement.  The implentation process can serve as a blueprint for future programs.  It is our belief the if you "heal the father you heal the family".
