Why is this conference special? The
immediate answer is based on an event
focusing on the impact fathers have on
the lives of children, families, and
communities from varying perspectives.
Ask yourself, “Do we have programs with
commitment and purpose in seeking
greater outcomes for children?”
Regardless of how you answer as an
individual, practitioner, or from an organizational perspective, enrolling in this conference will
help advance strategies to work with fathers, enhance strengthening families’ initiatives,
early-childhood programming, prevention programs, and more. Hosting the 21st Annual
Families and Fathers Conference would not be able to happen without our sponsors and a
wonderful team of volunteers. Next Level 2020 Featured Sponsors include The Annie E.
Casey Foundation; The California Endowment Foundation; Data Caliper; State of California
