ABOUT US

Our Programs

We offer Fatherhood Meetings and Programs for all fathers in Metropolitan Baton Rouge and beyond.

Fatherhood Meetings

Fatherhood Meetings is a monthly meeting that provides an open dialogue for fathers and father figures to discuss their experiences and challenges in fatherhood. Sessions aim to connect fathers, build a supportive network, and promote growth as individuals and members of their communities. The program offers a supportive environment, covering topics such as motivation and hindrances, and provides resources, support, and guidance to help fathers be successful.

Fatherhood Classes

Fatherhood Classes assesses how activities foster stronger bonds between fathers and their families. Classes are weekly meetings that provide an open dialogue for fathers and father figures to discuss their experiences and challenges in fatherhood. The sessions offer support for fathers and father figures by examining the availability and effectiveness of various resources, such as experience-based advice, guidance, and free items and services, in promoting engaged fatherhood.

Project Family Build

Project Family Build is a Social Services Intervention focusing on providing access to employment opportunities by assessing the impact of FOAM's connections to job opportunities. We provide housing assistance by analyzing the effects of FOAM's support in securing stable housing for fathers and their families. We help fathers access educational or vocational training programs. We also offer mental health support by referring Fathers to various services that can increase their well-being.
