Hundley Foundation Fatherhood Program

The next Hundley Foundation Fatherhood Program will start on Thursday, June 9, 2022  from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. and will continue every Thursday evening until August 25, 2022. After you register you will receive an e-mail from Eisner Health with more details and the Zoom link.

The presence of a nurturing and attentive father has a profound impact on the health and well-being of a child. But, becoming a responsible father is not easy, especially if you did not have a positive male role model growing up.

This is why the Hundley Foundation created the Hundley Fatherhood Program at Eisner Health. It is a FREE and CONFIDENTIAL 12-week program for fathers, stepfathers, relative caregivers and foster parents of children of any age. During this class,  you will meet other dads, learn how to communicate with your children, appropriate activities and community resources available to you and your kids.

There is a new session in English or Spanish starting every three months.

During this class,  I learned how to transmit positively to our children; the influences that affect our children and the attention we need at each of the stages.
