The Healthy Fathering Collaborative believes in supporting and empowering fathers to develop their assets as nurturers, caregivers and providers of their children.  Learn more about how we define a healthy father. The HFC is a leader in the Asset-Based Fatherhood Movement. Check out our lifespan of fatherhood model.


Fathers Reading Matters

We believe that healthy fathers spend time reading to their children regularly!  Their children reap enormous benefits and it is a wonderful way to develop a meaningful father-child bond.

Research studies done across the globe have found a direct connection between fathers reading to their children and cognitive and language development, reading, school success, emotional health, and mental health. Many of studies have also suggested that fathers are more strongly linked to early language development and social emotional development in early childhood. Click here to learn more...

Children are more successful when their fathers read to them 20 minutes a day!



Fathers Walk

The 17th Annual Fathers Walk will be Thursday September 22, 2022  for schools and early childhood programs throughout Cuyahoga County and across the State of Ohio.

Fathers and other male mentors are encouraged to take children they care for to school on this date and throughout the school year!  Please support the thousands of fathers, uncles, grandfathers, stepfathers, foster fathers, brothers and mentors that step up to support the education of children in their lives.  

Click here to order promotional cards for your school and we'll deliver them to you in late August or early September.
