Fatherhood

The Division of Children and Family Services (Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, Region IV; King County) and Divine Alternatives for Dads.

Under the management of the Community Engagement Initiative at the University of Washington, School of Social Work, the local fatherhood program, Divine Alternatives for Dads (DAD), offers the fatherhood support groups. The work of this program is supplemented by the Fatherhood Advisory Group, which is convened by the Catalyst for Kids Program.

The Partners

  • Divine Alternatives for Dads was founded in 2003 to provide services for non-resident fathers in the Seattle area. Among the services provided are child support management, parent involvement (visitation, parenting plans), reunification, parenting training, support groups and case management.
  • Catalyst for Kids is a statewide collaboration of the Division of Children and Family Services, the Superior Court, attorneys, educators and researchers, community service providers and constituents working in partnership to strengthen the child welfare system.
  • The Community Engagement Initiative at the University of Washington, School of Social Work has educated, trained, evaluated and informed the social program community with its research since 1979. The institute provides project management and evaluation.

The evaluation team, housed at the Community Engagement Initiative at the University of Washington, School of Social Work, uses a mixed-methods approach to collect extensive demographic, process and outcome data to examine how this set of interventions promotes desirable child welfare outcomes.
