Congratulations to the DCF Harbor Office Nurturing Fathers' Program team, whose members - DCF social workers and FNC trainers - were presented in March with the Department of Children & Families Commissioner's Award as part of this year's DCF Performance Awards Program. They were honored for their exemplary leadership and support to fathers and children.
This past fall marked the first time the DCF Harbor Office coordinated a bilingual (Spanish and English) Nurturing Fathers' Program. FNC's Nurturing Fathers' Program Director, John O'Neil (front center), and FNC partner, Fernando Medeiros, Ph.D., (back center) provided training and support for the team. Twenty-four fathers graduated from the 14-session program.
