Family Support Services
A Safety Net
CII’s family support services ensure that basic needs are met and caregivers have the tools to parent effectively. These programs develop readiness and resiliency, and empower families to stabilize their home lives and develop networks through parenting education, fatherhood support groups, financial literacy, and job preparation.
What started at CII as one support group with a few fathers has evolved over the last two decades into a movement to increase father involvement and spread the message of Project FatherhoodSM nationally. Since its inception, the program has served more than 12,000 fathers and 17,000 children across Los Angeles County, while training dozens of community organizations on the delivery of the program model.
Project FatherhoodSM provides comprehensive parenting skills to men in caregiving roles, including fathers, stepfathers, foster parents and relative caregivers.
