This case study focuses on how the Northeast Florida Healthy Start Coalition engaged fathers in its programming through the development of a fatherhood program, Fatherhood PRIDE. Key lessons and considerations include how human services programs can promote father engagement by:
- Emphasizing a father focus by including programs that support alongside other programming.
- Capturing a father’s motivation to participate during the intake process.
- Tapping into a father’s social network to increase his participation.
This case study is one of several resources produced through ASPE’s Key Programmatic Elements of Father Engagement to Promote Self-Sufficiency (KEEP Fathers Engaged) project.
