Supporting Children and Families through Father-Friendly Initiatives
Research has shown that positive father involvement leads to improved birth outcomes for mothers and infants, as well as greater academic success, increased self-esteem, improved ability to manage stress, and more positive social behavior in children across developmental stages. There are many programs focused on improving the health of children and families, however, many overlook the impact of involved fatherhood. Watch this webinar to learn about one funder’s journey to supporting father-friendly programming, lessons learned in creating successful initiatives across diverse communities, and the importance of—and sensitivities involved in—funding in this space. Featured Speaker: Leticia Sanchez of First 5 LA.
