Orange County Fatherhood Coalition

The OC Fatherhood Coalition started in 2022, and meets six times a year to discuss best practices, outreach strategies, and share resources for fathers and providers. Additionally, we provide training resources to agencies to become father friendly and support events targeting fathers and families.

Our vision is to improve outcomes for children and families by increasing fatherhood engagement with the most underserved populations in Orange County, improving engagement of dads in programs that support families, and impacting future generations.
