Fathers for Life Celebrates Graduates

Career Resources’  Fathers for Life Program offers an intensive parenting curriculum that covers topics such as child health and development,  co-parenting and communication skills and how to get along with your child’s other parent even when you don’t live together.

Career Resources Inc. (CRI) was one of the first agencies to partner with the state’s Department of Social Services (DSS) to quantify and validate high-quality programming to help parents increase the emotional and financial connection with their children. Last week, CRI staff and dignitaries celebrated the most recent Fathers for Life graduating class.

Congratulations to all those who completed the rigorous 12-week “24/7 Dads” program: Geraldo Algarin, Kenneth M. Bradley, Jr., Javier Coyotl, David E.  De Los Santos, Angel  L. González, Anthony T. Grant, William Griffin, Javin Headen, Shaquel T. Nixon, Courtney W. Pettway, Daniel J. Rammage, Marcus M. Robinson and Timothy Washington. And thanks to Fathers for Life alumni Walter Powell, Askia Sierra and Ivan Zumda for joining the celebration.
