Connecticut

Across every state there are efforts to help support the positive and engaged involvement of fathers in the lives of their children and families. Local schools, faith communities, and community organizations are among the groups providing support and services, as well as hosting family events throughout the year.

This section of Fatherhood.gov is not inclusive of all these efforts, but serves as a starting point to help connect fathers with programs and with each other. If you have a program, resource, or event that you would like us to consider for inclusion on this list, email us at info@fatherhood.gov.
