About: The Strong Fathers program, administered by Durham Congregations in Action, equips dads with the tools and information needed to overcome cycles of family violence and to ensure healthy social, emotional and physical development for their children and for generations to come.
2016-17 DGIN funding helped revise part of the Strong Fathers program to provide support to the Latino community as well as translate participant materials, compensate a bilingual/bicultural facilitator, and provide meals and resources for the Spanish-speaking group. This part of the Strong Fathers program is called “Padres Fuertes.”
