June is Fatherhood Month, HCJFS is making dads a priority

June is National Fatherhood Month. 

At HCJFS, we’ve been working for a while now to honor fathers and help them do their best for their families. 

We relaunched the Fatherhood Collaborative of Hamilton County this year. The collaborative is a collection of community members and organizations.

It’s mission is, “To create and sustain community consciousness, conversation and action on the needs and aspirations of fathers and their role in the development of healthy children and families.”

On the collaborative’s web page at HCFathers.org, you can find videos of dads talking about what fatherhood means, and you can nominate Fatherhood Heroes to help us tell the story of great dads in our community.
