fathers and family network fy17 rfr is out!


The Children’s Trust is excited to announce the release of the Fathers and Family Network Request for Responses (RFR) for FY2017.

The Fathers and Family Network, part of our Fatherhood Initiative, is a statewide networking and training group for professionals who work with fathers. The group helps professionals enhance skills, learn new strategies for engaging fathers, and coordinate services across the state. In addition, the group helps raise greater public awareness of the important role that fathers play in the well-being of their families.

It is anticipated that the Children’s Trust will award a total of up to five contracts to agencies serving geographically diverse regions of Massachusetts for the implementation of the Fathers and Family Network. We offer funding, technical support, training opportunities, and other resources in order to facilitate grantees’ work with fathers.
