A research team from the Kent School of Social Work at the University of Louisville has received a $5 million grant to fund the “4 Your Child Project”. The project is hoping to connect fathers, who do not have custody of their children, with resources to enable them to be an active part of their children’s lives.
The program is working with the Kentucky Office of Child Support Enforcement to help fathers. The program hopes to help about 1500 families. The program features group-based parent education and individual case management that will help these fathers become financially independent and develop parents skills to become responsible fathers.
More information about the project can be found on the 4 Your Child’s website.
