Denver Human Services' (DHS) Fatherhood Program empowers fathers to grow as men and parents, as we support them to be the fathers they want to be to their children.
It’s a proven fact: children that have a father involved in their lives tend to do better in school, are more emotionally secure, and develop better social connections.
The DHS Fatherhood Program helps fathers gain the skills and support they need to “be there” for their children, both financially and otherwise.
Being an engaged, supportive father starts with addressing issues in your life that may otherwise prevent it. If you’re responsible for paying child support, we can help you connect to resources and gain problem-solving skills so you can meet your obligations:
DHS offers free information, classes, and support groups that address a variety of fatherhood-related topics:
The Nurturing Fathers class is an evidence-based, 10- to 15-week program for developing attitudes and skills for male nurturance. Participants will learn:
The Nurturing Fathers class is held in English each Thursday night, 5:30-8 p.m., and in Spanish each Tuesday night, 5:30-8 p.m. All classes are held at the Richard T. Castro Center, 1200 Federal Blvd., Denver, CO 80204.
