  • Improve fathers’ understanding of social-emotional needs of children through social activities
  • Promote fathering/parenting skills that ensure healthy development
  • Increase families’ support networks,  thereby reducing isolation
  • Increase opportunities for fun, healthy father-child activities20140716_109_Thrive-Dynamite DadsIMG_9007
