Fatherhood Involvement (24/7 DAD)

Healthier Generations Logo


  247 DAD

Clayton County Board of Health (CCBOH)/ Healthier Genations Project (HGP) was awarded the HRSA Healthy Start grant in 2013 which includes deliverables around fatherhood involvement. HGP utilizes the 24/7 DAD curriculum to engage, educate and encourge fatherhood involvement.  The implentation process can serve as a blueprint for future programs.  It is our belief the if you "heal the father you heal the family".



The program curriculum is divided into two parts A.M/P.M

The A.M. is for first-time dads or for fathers lacking vital skills, knowledge and attitudes. The P.M. includes more in-depth information for more experienced fathers, or dads who have completed the A.M. program.
