Case Management

Providing one-on-one case advocacy. This includes assistance with referrals to gaining housing, legal research assistance, drug rehabilitation and pre-employment services.

Child Support

Guidance and assistance for fathers who are in arrears on their child support obligations. Fathers learn how to obtain affordable terms for their payments, which helps both the fathers and the children. DADS counseling and assistance increases the amount of money going into Child Support from their clients, and helps father get on a solid financial footing.

Document Preparation

Helping prepare, complete and print necessary official documents to receive services and legal status.

Family Reunification​

Helping fathers reunite with their children and families. By organizing parenting plans, parents are able to establish a balance of involvement and visiting.

Referral Services

Making suggestions and connecting with partner organizations and agencies to support fatherhood.

Parenting Classes

Referring fathers to parenting classes at an outside agency to increase their capacities to communicate with their children and to develop stronger parent-child relationships.

Support Groups

Our men’s support groups encourage fathers to grow in their commitment to their families. Fathers find hope, encouragement and relationships to do the hard work of becoming loving, responsible dads.

Parenting Plan Assistance

Making a clear plan for the steps needed to have access to children and family, to support standardization of legal process requirements recognized by courts. Support for visitation and custody schedules.
