It's true that Colorado is leading the nation in helping fathers be there for their kids. The results have been astounding with assistance given to close to 6,000 Colorado dads since the launch of the Colorado Promoting Responsible Fatherhood (PRF) Initiative in October 2006. From Grand Junction to Lamar, Sterling to Cortez, there are countless stories of fathers who are now equipped with fatherhood tools thanks to their participation in local fatherhood programs. This Legacy Blog was created to highlight the incredible work that has taken place with fathers in our state since the PRF Initiative's inception.
