Military fathers and their families face unique challenges, particularly during times of deployment and after completion of military service. These challenges may include issues such as preparing children for their father's absence or return, maintaining strong family connections, establishing effective family routines, addressing and solving problems as a family, and assimilating back to civilian life.
This webinar highlighted services and resources available for military families and discussed ways in which community based fatherhood programs can help veterans.
