Fatherhood: Family-focused, Interconnected, Resilient, and Essential

Promoting healthy relationships
between fathers and families




A Father’s Place, Prince George’s County (AFPPGC), looks for fathers who want to be positive role models and leaders for their children, families, and the community. We call on fathers in our area to help end the “fatherless” narrative and help create healthier families and stronger communities. Our program provides resources and high-impact services that help fathers where they need help the most. AFPPGC offers free services to fathers.

 

Our Program




We created a program for fathers centered around three activity areas: healthy relationships, responsible parenting, and economic stability. Our program provides fathers with the tools, knowledge, and resources to strengthen their relationships, learn new parenting skills, and become financially and economically stable.

Our program helps fathers focus on transforming a relationship with their spouse, co-parent, and children.

Sometimes, fathers need just a little help. We help fathers develop effective parenting and nurturing skills.

You will learn the tools and practices to help you and your family develop a solid financial foundation.

For Fathers


The bond between a child and their father is precious. AFPPGC is a safe, supportive space where men can learn how to become better fathers for their children and families. No father is perfect, but our children need strong fathers now more than ever. We created a space for fathers to thrive, grow, and be the best example they wish to set for their children.
