Washington Fatherhood Council


ESA hosts the Washington Fatherhood Council, a collaborative group of more than 35 state and local providers, academics and fathers with lived expertise. The council fosters service provider capacity, creates community for fathers, works for policy change and resource investment in fathers, and promotes the voices and experiences of fathers to transform family systems. By increasing fatherhood access and belonging, the council helps further ESA’s goal of reducing poverty and inequality. Contact wafatherhoodcouncil@dshs.wa.gov.
