What are Fathers Saying?

Hear what fathers that completed a fatherhood program had to say. 

 

"I am forever grateful for the staff and programming. They have helped me transition into being allowed to spend time with my daughter and to be the great father I have become. The staff here is genuine, caring and very helpful."

"I feel I understand more about what being a father really means and what I have to do to be the best father I can be.  This program really helped me."

"This was a very helpful program and I would recommend this program to any father! Thank you!"

"It helped me to be a better man and gave me a better understanding on how to treat my kids better and be a better father. "

"I enjoyed the fellowship of the program."

"I've learned a lot of valuable lessons that I can't wait to apply to my life and teach my children."

"I understand now - I must look at my life through my children's eyes, everything must be about them."

"I took this program to better myself and to help me be a better father to my son than my father was to me."

"I received knowledge I can use in the future."

"I learned many new things just by listening to other fathers' problems and issues."
