EVENING SUPPORT GROUP FOR FATHER'S
The FOFV Fathers' Support Group is a peer-to-peer group created to offer fathers an opportunity to share coping and child rearing strategies, feel acknowledged, get support, and build new friendships. Join us to share frustrations and hopes for our families and ourselves. We address communication skills, explore parenting strategies, and discuss accountability issues. This group is a safe place for all fathers – single, divorced, married – to explore the issues they are facing. Fathers that face life challenges and are willing to address them can learn to overcome their difficulties to achieve better relationships, parent more effectively, and enhance their overall well-being.
*Note*: A raffle ticket is given to father's for every attendance. The tickets will be randomly selected and awarded to receive 2 free donated tickets to a local professional sporting event.
The FOFV Fathers' Support Group is open to anyone on a drop in basis but we request that you RSVP via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no fee for this class but donations are gratefully accepted.
Facilitator: Jay Harnden is a father of two and has been involved with Father Matters for nine years, doing workshops and men's group meetings across the United States. He is also a certified coach and has began his own business Family Coaching Solutions.
