This will be done by the monthly and weekly activities. We empower DADS (DELTA ALPHA DELTA SIGMA).
Using a holistic approach, NCCF offers fathers mentoring, parenting and life skills, legal assistance, help to improve math and reading skills, individual counseling, support groups, Father/Child activities, employment search and interview preparation services.
