Upcoming Y&FS Events


June 1, 2023 Fatherhood Summit 

7th Annual Texas Fatherhood Summit

Our 7th Annual Texas Fatherhood Summit will return in person on June 1st in Austin.

After two years of virtual gatherings, the summit will serve as a celebration and exploration of the work that providers, community stakeholders, and partnership state agencies do to support fathers in Texas communities as well as share trends and best practices related to fatherhood specific initiatives.

The overarching goal of the Fatherhood Summit is to build and share a comprehensive approach to supporting Texas fathers and their families. Attendees will return to their communities with energy, resolve and resources to deepen support for fathers across Texas.

We are excited to announce that our keynote speaker will be Dr. Armon Perry.  Dr. Perry is a Professor in the Kent School of Social Work at the University of Louisville, Kentucky. His research efforts center on the intrapersonal, interpersonal, and external factors that influence men's involvement in the lives of their children and families, as well as the impact of that involvement on the well-being of the family. The findings of his research have pointed to the tools, resources, and experiences that shape men’s ability to be involved fathers, the  role that mothers play in facilitating or truncating fathers’ involvement, and social service providers’ attitudes toward engaging fathers.
