Our mission is to improve the health and well-being of children by empowering fathers to be active, informed and emotionally engaged with their children and families.
Message from the Director
Dear ,


Welcome to the first TFP Newsletter! Thanks to the generosity of our supporters and partners over the last year, we have successfully expanded our programs, developed new resources, and launched a new website.

When you visit our new site, you will find high-quality, continuously updated research and resources, including:

  • The Fatherhood Project's Research Review
  • Information about our direct-service programs for fathers, training for the professionals who work with them, and TFP's innovative research projects.
  • Podcast interviews with the top researchers and practitioners in the fatherhood field
  • Downloadable PDF activities for fathers
  • Informative videos, such as the one below featuring New York Times best-selling author Andre Dubus III. In this video from our Virtual Visitor series, Andre recounts his journey of transformation, reconciling a violent past with becoming a father.

Thank you to all of our supporters for helping us in our successful evolution.  We look forward to continuing to work together to empower fathers and improve the lives of children and families.

Fathers in Prenatal Care: A TFP Research Project

The Fatherhood Project, in collaboration with Hiyam Nadel, RN and her staff at the MGH Vincent Department of Obstetrics, has developed an innovative research initiative to increase father involvement in prenatal care. 

DID YOU KNOW about 'The Magic Moment'?

While the research is clear about the importance of fathers' early involvement with their children, what's less clear is how providers are and are not educating and engaging dads about the significance of their role.
