Nine years ago, we expanded our services in order to break intergenerational cycles of incarceration by providing support to fathers. Our Friends 2 Fathers Program (F2F) is a community-based fatherhood initiative for non-custodial fathers who are 25 years and older and who reside in the Bronx. F2F provides a strength-based, comprehensive program to promote responsible fatherhood with an emphasis on a father’s commitment, support and engagement in the lives of their children. Our program provides a variety of services and forms of assistance to men including individual counseling, anger management services, court advocacy (child support, visitation and custody matters), domestic violence/batterers intervention services, intensive case management, and informative/educational workshops that focus on parenting skills, conflict resolution/mediation, financial literacy, healthy relationships and life skills. In addition, F2F provides assistance and referrals for employment, vocational training, housing and educational services as needed.
