9th Annual Wayne County Fatherhood Initiative Forum

A father’s involvement in his child’s life is critical to the child’s success in school and in life. Fathers, Grandfathers, Mentors, Coaches, Partners, Uncles, and any other male caregivers are all vitally important in the lives of all children. Join us for a day dedicated to helping dads and male caregivers become strong role models for their children and families.

If you are a male caregiver, a father, a supporter of fathers, or a professional working with and advocating for fathers, this event will provide speakers, resources and breakout sessions that every father, male caregiver, supporter and professional should attend.
