Fatherhood

Indiana Fathers and Families Center and Indiana Department of Child Services

The Indiana Department of Child Services collaborates with an array of partners to offer the 20-week peer-led support group designed by the QIC-NRF supplemental project team.

The Partners

  • The Indiana Fathers and Families Center started in 1993 as an organization supporting young fathers in their efforts to gain GEDs. Incorporating as a 501(c)(3) in 1998, the organization has expanded its range of services to young fathers and will house the project and provide a full-time staff member to lead.
  • The Indiana University School of Social Work will provide the external evaluation for the project.
  • The Indiana Department of Child Services, Child Support Bureau assists in locating non-resident fathers and work with fathers who need additional support.

To supplement the peer-led support group, fathers are offered:

  • Legal support (advocacy letters to the courts);
  • Legal fees;
  • Transportation help (reinstatement of a driver’s license, car repair or bus tickets);
  • Assistance in finding housing, child care, clothing, food, and education;
  • Technical training, and
  • Mental health and other referrals.
