Publication Date

I, along with my team at the National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse, are saddened to announce the passing of our colleague and friend, Halbert Sullivan. Halbert made a notable impact in the work of  Responsible Fatherhood (RF), most recently as the CEO of Fathers & Families Support Center (FFSC), and will be greatly missed.

As noted by Seth Chamberlain,  Division Director, Office of Family Assistance, “Halbert wasn’t just a grantee in multiple RF cohorts. The federal Parents and Children Together evaluated his program and found it had strong, positive impact on fathers. He networked and supported other father-focused programs across the country, and his program was emulated. His influence was broad, and his expertise was constantly sought.” 

Hal was a friend and colleague whose work I greatly admired. He was a pioneer and leader in the fatherhood field. He was a giant; he was a visionary; he was tenacious; he was kind. This is a sudden and devastating loss for the field. Personally and professionally, we will miss his presence, but we will never forget his contributions. No one ever forgot meeting Hal. Our condolences go out to Mr. Sullivan’s family and the Fathers & Families Support Center staff.
