Working to engage fathers
A Next Door father treats Arthur to story time! As part of our family support services, we partner with dads to develop strong family relationships and more.


Strong families are essential to the future of our community, and both mothers and fathers play a significant role in the lives of their children.

Next Door has a team of Family Advocates and Parent Educators who offer innovative and interactive programs to help fathers get engaged in their children’s lives. They also connect dads to the resources they need to become strong role models and support their families. Next Door’s Fatherhood program only serves fathers with children enrolled in our programs.

In 2014, a documentary on one of our team members appeared on PBS. Click HERE to watch it.
