Fatherhood Coalition of Tarrant County

The Fatherhood Coalition of Tarrant County is a collaborative partnership consisting of over thirty organizations committed to promoting responsible fatherhood in Tarrant County.

The Coalition began as the Fatherhood Initiative organized in 2000 by Workforce Solutions for Tarrant County. Later that year, it joined forces with a community-based effort under the leadership of Charles Scoma, then mayor of North Richland Hills, to form the Fatherhood Coalition of Tarrant County.

For meeting information, list of officers, member organizations, activities and other resources, please visit the Fatherhood Coalition website.

New and Improved Dad’s Resource Guide!

Workforce Solutions for Tarrant County and the Fatherhood Coalition of Tarrant County partnered to create a new and improved Dad’s Resource Guide. The Dad’s Resource Guide is a comprehensive list of human resources and services available to the residents of Tarrant County and surrounding areas. Previously, the Dad’s Resource Guide was distributed as a pocket sized booklet that Tarrant County Residents could refer to anytime they were in need of services. Now, individuals can access this great guide from any computer or mobile device! As always, we will continue to provide printed versions of the booklet for individuals who do not have reliable access to a computer or the internet.
