Fathers Needed from Avondale, Price Hill and Walnut Hills

Father and sonThe Fatherhood Collaborative is looking for fathers of all ethnicities and socioeconomic backgrounds from Avondale (9/12/2020), Price Hill (9/19/2020), and Walnut Hills (9/26/2020). We will be hosting conversations via Microsoft Teams. The conversation will take place from 10-11:30 a.m.

Only 20 fathers from each neighborhood will be selected to participate in the conversation. Fathers will only participate in one conversation, and it will be with fathers from their neighborhood. All participants will be given an incentive for their participation. They must register and complete our survey to receive the incentive.
