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’s workshop was awesome! TFP was able to cater to professionals from all levels of government and community partners including fathers. The attendees were able to leave with a deeper understanding of why fathers matter in young children’s lives.
