Join us for 
Fatherhood Week

Monday, June 15 - Sunday, June 21

Talbert House is one of the leading advocates for promoting fatherhood. The Talbert House Fatherhood Project assists men in their efforts to be responsible, committed and nurturing fathers. After making the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Fatherhood Community Celebration, we created Fatherhood Week.

This week long virtual celebration of fathers, includes fun, interactive and educational activities for fathers and their families. All events are FREE and you can win prizes during each event/activity.

 

Send a Father's Day Card!

Recognize the father or father figure who has made a difference in your life or a Fatherhood graduate/client by making a donation to the Fatherhood Project. We will send a Father's Day card to notify them a donation has been made in their honor.
