Organizations across the country are considering—or actively offering—father-focused services. Whether new to the field or seasoned practitioners, all can benefit from developing, refining, and implementing strategies designed to engage fathers. This session will take participants on an exploratory journey of personal and organizational capacity to assess their readiness to set a place at the fatherhood table. Preparation involves careful consideration of whether a program’s policy, practice, and mission align with those of public and private funding organizations. Preparation also requires thoughtful attention to program design, implementation, and continuous quality improvement. In this highly interactive session, participants will get up, think, move, and collaborate with others to complete an organizational readiness and strategy checklist. This assessment will help guide afternoon workshop choices and provide the tools needed to create a winning strategy for success in serving fathers.
