“The Quest Program has a great track record of serving the greater Hartford community,” says Carrie. “I’m looking forward to learning and applying new leadership skills for a project that will enhance the ability of fathers to access crucial support services in the City of Hartford."
Carrie’s Quest taskforce will research and create a resource guide for professionals and fathers to assist them in accessing and negotiating the services they need to be active, engaged and informed parents. The goal is to encourage fathers to seek out parenting resources within the city designed to improve and develop parental skills and promote positive father-child attachment, thus increasing parental involvement. This project also aims to give fathers vital information about crucial social services, educational and employment opportunities.
