Life Coaching & Fundamentals of Fatherhood

The City of Long Beach is a large, active and diverse city and we strive to create places and spaces that are welcoming for all the residents in our community. We invite you to join our movement to create a Father Friendly Long Beach for all! The City of Long Beach is encouraging businesses, agencies and organizations to implement father friendly policies and practices that make places and spaces better for the whole family. This campaign works to acknowledge the important role that fathers play in their child’s life; fathers are caregivers, nurturers and role models to their children. Let’s empower and celebrate our dads by building a supportive community that will let fathers, their children and the whole Long Beach community thrive! Download PDF.
