Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention
Children’s Trust Fund of Alabama
The Alabama Department of Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention (ADCANP) will expand the number and services of fatherhood programs in the state with increased funding from the Department of Human Resources (DHR), utilizing Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) dollars. A total of 20 Fatherhood Programs will be funded through this agreement.
Each of the 20 programs will be evaluated by Auburn University. Each will serve families, including mothers, while tracking child support payments, job placements, enrollment in food assistance programs and other elements if applicable, such as re-entry programs and non-custodial parents.
Many thanks to the Commissioner of Human Resources, Nancy Buckner, and our colleagues at DHR for securing the funding necessary to continue these worthy programs in Alabama.
