The Fatherhood Project

The Fatherhood Project is a non-profit fatherhood program in the Department of Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), Boston, MA. 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.

The Fatherhood Project provided a great service to the young men at our school that are fathering. Our young dads were able to recognize how important they are in their children's lives and to think about what kind of dad they want to be. TFP’s program is a great resource for our students.
