This website provides an overview of the Caring Dads intervention program including program rationale, philosophies, content, research support and locations of Caring Dads groups.

We offer intervention to fathers, train communities in engaging, assessing and intervening with high-risk men and conduct research on how we can continue to improve our practice.

If you're a father, this website can help you decide whether a Caring Dads program is right for you, what to expect from the program, and where to actually find a program.
