Keep your balance in the separation
Separated Fathers inc. is an established referral center reaching out to men and separated fathers experiencing a family transition due to a marital break-up. We support the health and wellness of fathers so to maintain and strenghten the father -child bond in the spirit of co-parenting in a sustaining healthy community.
Coaching and increasing readiness with men and separated fathers through the life transition of marital or parental break-up, so as to maintain and possibly strengthen a healthy father-child relationship in a coparenting spirit while ensuring their own health and well-being.
Our approach consists of helping separated fathers and men during this transition to overcome the isolation through mutual aid and a supportive social network. We encourage them to rely on their personal strengths and parental capacity in a coparenting spirit, while promoting member participation, peer and social solidarity.
