Strong Fathers
Anyone can be a father, but it takes commitment to be a great dad

Active and loving fathers have a central role to play in the healthy development of their children, families and community.  The mission of the Forestdale’s Strong Fathers program is to encourage fathers’ emotional and financial support of their families. With the sponsorship of New York City’s Department of Youth and Community Development, Strong Fathers serves more than 250 fathers and their families every year.

In our Program, fathers participate in job training and placement, learn to bond and play with their children, and co-parent with the mothers of their children.
