"Building Fathers from the Ground Up": Alabama's Network of Fatherhood Programs (Workshop 47)
The workshop is designed for state and local professionals developing, administering, and/or funding fatherhood programs. The Children's Trust Fund of Alabama (CTF), in partnership with the State of Alabama Department of Human Resources, is in the third funding cycle (utilizing TANF funds) for community-based and faith-based fatherhood programs. To date, the CTF has granted over three million dollars to over 60 community-based and faith-based programs located throughout the State of Alabama. The workshop will discuss early obstacles that were encountered by the funded programs, such as lack of community support and a target population that was difficult to access.
