Paterson group offering fathering skills classes


The New Destiny Family Success Center is offering a five-week program to equip dads with the knowledge and skills to raise healthy children.

The fathering skills program is modeled after the nationally recognized initiative called 24/7 Dad begun by National Fatherhood Initiative whose aim is to reverse the fatherless household trend.

Fathers will meet from 6-7:30 p.m. on Tuesday evenings and have one super Saturday for five weeks.

Classes will begin in March 2016 at the nonprofit’s office at 79 Ellison Street.

Interested parties are being urged to register now.

Space is limited.

The program is free and dinner will be served.

To sign up for the program call (973) 278-0220 or email ihenderson@newdestinyfsc.org.
