Morning and evening classes available

Newport News Department of Human Services is hosting community-based 24/7 Dad ® fatherhood education classes beginning in June at the South Morrison Family Education Center at 746 Adams Drive. 24_7 Dad24/7 Dad ® is an evidence-based nationwide program designed to improve the knowledge, behavior and skills of fathers and is built on the premise that fathers can also be nurturers.

The classes are open to all fathers and fathers-to-be and are in two different sessions available mornings or afternoons. Register through the links below or contact Ms. Diggs at 757-369-6814.
