The Next Door Fatherhood Initiative is more than a program, it’s a brotherhood.  Cultures of all ethnicities and backgrounds have benefited from the program relationally, and economically.  Statistics show that strong families are essential to the future of our community, and that both mothers and fathers play a significant role in the lives of their children.  Therefore, Next Door provides innovative ways for fathers to get engaged, and connects them to the resources that they may need to become the fathers that they intend to be.
