PROGRAM 1
Responsible Fatherhood Program
This comprehensive program is designed for dads and expecting fathers who wish to learn more about responsible fatherhood skills, traits and practices over a three-month program cycle. We focus on strengthening family resiliency, fatherhood involvement, and knowledge about parenting skills. We expose participating fathers to the essential tools needed to successfully care for their child’s financial, and emotional stability. We provide fatherhood resources, services, and educational assistance through our collaborative partners. Lastly, this fatherhood program addresses “Self Care” opportunities that assist participants mentally, spiritually, and emotionally when actively involved in the lives of their children.

Programs
PROGRAM 1
Adolescent Health & Youth Development
Adolescent Health & Youth Development aims to empower youth in the Cobb &Douglas Public Health district to advocate for healthy life choices for youth, ages 10-19. Through collaborating with schools, faith-based, non-profit organizations, and other government agencies, a network of community-based supports have been developed to help adolescents improve health outcomes and succeed as they move into adulthood. Programs and services enhance life skills, healthy behaviors and activities, and reduce high-risk behaviors, such as violence, substance abuse, poor school performance, and sexual activity.
