Our Services


Fatherhood Support

Parent partners with lived experience overcoming similar struggles are available to assist fathers one-on-one. 

We work closely with the Rhode Island Department of Children, Youth & Families (DCYF) through referrals to help fathers complete their service goals on the path towards reunification. We also welcome community and self-referrals.  With a goal-oriented process and an empathetic approach, fathers of all stages and backgrounds can benefit.

In 2017, we were contracted by DCYF to lead the coordination of the Rhode Island Fatherhood Initiative (RIFI) to increase father engagement and improve outcomes for children and families.

We host a fatherhood group Wednesdays 5:30-7pm for any father seeking support or able to provide it.  This group ranges from teen fathers to grandfathers, all coming together sharing experiences and learning from each other.  This voluntary group is great for dads going through divorce/separation, involved with DCYF, first time fathers, and more. All who identify as a father are welcome to attend. 

Along with support and community, our goals include engaging fathers to

  • provide authentic input to state agencies and programs
  • partner with fathers to provide leadership and input to RIFI steering committee
  • work with father leaders to increase their knowledge and advocacy skills
  • promote public awareness for policy and practice reform

Together we can make a difference not only in our day to day lives but on a state policy level! While not required this is an option for interested fathers.

Wraparound Support

We lead the Family-Focused, Interconnected, Resilient, and Essential (FIRE) statewide service delivery program, working in partnership with the RIFI Steering Committee, Regional Family Community Partnership Program and other state and community-based agencies to deliver evidenced-based wraparound support. Wraparound care plans include goals that build upon the key focus areas of promoting and sustaining healthy marriages and relationships, responsible parenting, and economic security.
