Abby Dads

Supporting dads moving toward healthier relationships with their families

Abby Dads – Father Involvement Program

Abby Dads is actively involved in supporting dads moving toward healthier relationships with their families. We offer relationship-based training programs for dads such as Anger Awareness and Men in Relationships, and do attachment parenting programming for both parents, including Nobody’s Perfect.

The Chai Time and Dad Chat father drop-in programs create opportunities for fathers looking for staff and peer support.

We also work closely with the Family Center Best for Babies program in their pre and post natal programs, and offer individual support for clients that may need extra support. Much of our programming is also available in both English and Punjabi.

    Who We Help
