Child and Family Advocates of Cuyahoga County Staff attended the 2017 Fatherhood Conference at the Wyndham Playhouse Square Hotel in June. The Cuyahoga County Fatherhood Initiative's Celebration of Fatherhood is an annual forum created specifically to promote healthy father-child relationships, address the social problems that result from "father absence" and strategize as to what we must do, as a community, to ensure that every child has a dad in their lives.
The Cuyahoga County Fatherhood Initiative (CCFI) seeks to strengthen families in our community by encouraging fathers to play a more active role in nurturing and raising their children. The Fatherhood Initiative responds to the social concerns regarding "father absence" by providing fathers with services to prepare them to meet the psychological and financial needs of their children. The CCFI also seeks to increase public awareness of the importance of father involvement. To learn more, please click here.
