ABOUT THE SUMMIT

You are invited to the second annual 2017 Texas Fatherhood Summit: Strengthening Services to Support Fathers hosted by the Child and Family Research Partnership at The University of Texas at Austin LBJ School of Public Affairs and the Texas DFPS Prevention and Early Intervention Division in Austin, Texas.

The Texas Fatherhood Summit brings together researchers, policymakers, and practitioners in the field of fatherhood. The theme of the 2017 Texas Fatherhood Summit is "Strengthening Services to Support Fathers". Speakers will discuss the challenges and opportunities in recruiting, providing services, and retaining fathers in programs. Experts will discuss what the research shows on how to know if programs are really working. Providers will also be able to share lessons learned with each other throughout the day.

WHEN AND WHERE
