Maryland fatherhood programs focus on the important role fathers play in their children’s lives. As part of each initiative, this site is designed to keep you informed of events, policy changes, new initiatives, opportunities and resources that are available to fathers in our state.

All of our programs encourage the father to spend quality time with their children and to work on self improvement by participating in parenting programs that assist with meeting financial and emotional responsibilities in positive and meaningful ways.

All of the programs that are offered do not serve the entire state. You are encouraged to review the site to determine what services that you need and if those services are offered in your county or jurisdiction.
