A successful voluntary paternity acknowledgment program depends on having educated and enthusiastic partners. Our goal is to engage all entities from pregnancy and prenatal organizations to birthing hospitals, as well as post birth social service providers and faith and community-based organizations. We will provide our partners’ staff with training that provides a solid knowledge base that fosters an enthusiasm to help inform parents to establish that early prenatal bond by establishing paternity.
