January 14, 2019 at Embassy Suites, BPPN celebrated and honored some of the Fathers that participated in the 13-week Nurturing Father Program. The Program is designed to develop effective parenting skills for the well-being of children. The class provides proven, effective skills for healthy family relationships and child development. Program activities address nurturing our children and ourselves, fathering sons/fathering daughters relationships, discipline, play, managing anger/resolving conflict, and teamwork with spouse/partner.
Collaborative funding of the Nurturing Fathers Program comes from Say Yes Buffalo, Health Foundation of Western and Central NY and John R. Oshiei Foundation.
Thank you to WIVB, WGRZ, Spectrum News and Rod Watson from the Buffalo News for attending the graduation.
