Mary's Center Father Child Program

Mary's Center Father Child Program Saving lives and strengthening communities, one family at a time. Mary’s Center recognizes that fathers and mothers parent differently. For this reason, we created the Father-Child Program, which is designed to help men develop the attitude, knowledge, and skills to become involved in and connected to their children’s lives.
(1)

Father-Child has three main components: home visits, sports activities and monthly fatherhood outings. During home visits, fathers receive social support services, training, and advocacy services. Sports activities are designed to promote healthy habits and behaviors among fathers, while providing them with an outlet from the stress of their daily routine. Monthly fatherhood outings are activities designed for the whole family that promote recreation, quality time, and family bonding.

Mission: Our mission is to support men develop the attitude, knowledge, and skills to become an involved committed father in their children’s lives.
