STRONG DADS MAKE A DIFFERENCE
The FELLAS Fatherhood Program engages fathers throughout Essex County to promote healthy relationships, strengthen parenting skills, and increase economic stability through employment training and support.
Father-to-Father Bonding and Building
The best role model for a father is a father. FELLAS is a place for dads to share experiences and learn from their peers.
Every FELLAS participant is paired with a Fatherhood Program Specialist who provides one-to-one support and practical resources to help dads succeed.
Fathers At Work
Economic stability reduces family stress. FELLAS offers computer training, resume building, and other job resources to promote steady employment and career advancement.
Fatherhood is more than providing for a child. Through goal planning, FELLAS learn life skills to foster good communication and strong relationships with their children, significant others, and/or co-parent.
