NEFHSC awarded dual grants from state for dads

Father First is a groundbreaking statewide initiative, driven by both community and state-level support, dedicated to empowering fathers and enhancing their pivotal roles intheir children’s lives. Our agency secured two, three-year grants, part of the $21.2 million initiative spearheaded by Gov. Ron DeSantis and administered through the Florida Department of Children and Families. At NEFHSC, we actively engage with fathers and father figures, providing essential support to strengthen the father-child relationship. Beyond that, our comprehensive approach extends to assisting men in navigating the complexities of the child support system and the legal process. We collaborate on crucial aspects including employment readiness, conflict resolution, and financial self-efficacy.
