The 16th Annual Fathers Walk will be Thursday September 23, 2021  for public, private, and charter schools throughout Cuyahoga County.  This year we anticipate that schools will host outdoor or virtual events. Outdoor events will likely involve social distancing and masking for participants. <br style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: small; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: small; Fathers and other male mentors are encouraged to be involved in their child(ren)s education 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.

Fathering Infants

A recently released study linked early parenting of infants by fathers with reduced symptoms of depresssion in those same fathers.  Please help us promote the engagement and preparation of expectant and new fathers for childbirth, infant care and early parenting.
