Overview:

Jefferson County's Fatherhood Program connects non-custodial fathers to responsible fatherhood life skills, job skills and parenting skills and co-parenting classes to the community. Father mentors, Wednesday night support group, in collaboration with HeadStart, and seminars are provided to non-custodial fathers through collaboration with the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF)/ Child Welfare Collaboration Project (TCCP)/Work Force Services/Jefferson County Mediation Office in Jefferson County. The fatherhood course is available to all non-residential dads in Jefferson County free of charge if they have an open and active child support case with the CSE office in Jefferson County. Our program is also a recipient of fatherhood curricula from the National Fatherhood Initiative Resource Centers and implemented a Child Support Problem Solving Court in 2009.
