Go to Fatherhood.gov for a list of participating barbershops and community organizations
Historically, neighborhood barbershops have served as hubs where men go to discuss issues in the community (family, politics, and health, money and life issues). The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Administration for Children and Families, Office of Family Assistance, National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse believes that peer education among men is critical in disseminating information about fatherhood and the role of fathers in society.
