Third FRPN Learning Community Webinar Scheduled

The FRPN will host our next learning community webinar - Engaging Mothers in Fatherhood Programs and Improving Coparenting Among Unmarried Parents - on Tuesday, Sept. 22 from 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. EST. Key topics to be discussed include:

  • Why mother engagement is important for fatherhood programs.
  • Why mothers may be reluctant to participate in fatherhood programs and successful strategies to engage them.
  • Coparenting interventions and curricula.
  • Addressing domestic violence and safety.
  • Current research on coparenting as well as relevant outcomes and measurement.



FRPN Grantees Announced

We are excited to announce that the FRPN has selected its first round of funded projects - four projects designed to rigorously evaluate fatherhood programs that will receive a total of $350,000. These projects involve randomized-controlled trials (RCTs); are led by researcher/practitioner teams; and involve the collection of data from program participants and/or staff at pre and post-program time points to assess changes in father-child relationships and coparenting.
