The federal Child and Family Services Reviews indicate there is very little meaningful interaction between fathers and the child welfare system. Research supports that fathers are vital to the overall success and well-being of their children. A father's presence in a child's life makes a positive difference in social and emotional development, academic success, and overall child well-being. Involving non-resident fathers in the lives of their children becomes a greater challenge when these children are involved in the public child welfare system. The National Resource Center for In-Home Services is committed to working with States and Tribes to strengthen father involvement in families where the children are served in their homes. The goals of this NRC In-Home sponsored webinar will be to:

• To promote and support a research-based and outcome-focused approach to inform best practices related to engaging non-resident fathers and paternal family in the public child welfare in-home services system

• To facilitate a research- based information-sharing presentation on building father involvement programs

• To discuss some of the strengths and challenges of involving fathers

• To share a successful father involvement component of a Parents As Teachers home visiting program
