Thursday, February 24, 2011
Waterbury, CT

New Opportunities Fatherhood program was recognized for excellence in surpassing program standards and awarded a four year recertification as a John S. Martinez Certified Fatherhood Site. The Department of Social Services (DSS) officially awarded the certification at its 3rd Award Ceremony held in Hartford on January 31, 2011.

New Opportunities was first awarded certification as a Fatherhood site in December of 2006 - becoming only the 6th certified site in Connecticut at the time. Today, there are only ten certified sites in the state with certification signifying that each program site meets or exceeds 10 core standards in delivering services for fathers and families.
