We are a free federally-funded community program created out of a need to support fathers in their fatherhood journey—a journey that seeks to build stronger, healthier children and families in Prince George’s County, Maryland. A Father’s Place, Prince George’s County serves the family by starting with the father.
Our vision is that fathers are up-lifted, barriers are removed, families are restored, and communities are transformed.
Our mission is to promote fathers as the essential component to building stronger children, families, communities, and society by providing high-impact services that support, enhance, and advance responsible fatherhood in Prince George's County.

We have created a program for fathers centered around three activity areas: healthy relationships, responsible parenting, and economic stability. Each group of fathers will complete 50-hours of skill-based sessions designed to improve healthy relationships and marriage skills, improve parenting and co-parenting skills, and progress toward greater economic stability. We will meet with our fathers, focusing on building community, sharing resources, and working together to get through fatherhood.
