Indiana

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.

Highlights

Cornerstone of Hope Church: Indianapolis, IN
The Cornerstone Community Development Center is a non-profit, non-sectarian unit of Cornerstone of Hope Church, Inc., located in Indianapolis, Indiana. The marriage ministry of Cornerstone of Hope Church was formed to educate couples on effective ways to resolve conflict, improve communication, and enhance marital relations. The church has been hosting programs for couples within the congregation for several years, and after seeing the couple’s marriages flourish, decided to expand the program to the community in collaboration with other houses of worship and community partners. The Enriching Marriages in Indiana Project (EMIP) trains and equips low-income couples that have chosen marriage to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of their relationships through a range of marriage education services. Through these services, couples acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to form and sustain healthy marriages.
