THE DIFFERENCE

Fathers are unique and instrumental in the well-being and development of children. The interaction of fathers with their children can provide emotional, physical, spiritual and social support. Fathers First facilitates the development of skills that support this critical relationship.

WHAT IS THE NEED?

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 24 million children in America, which is one out of three, live in biological father-absent homes. Consequently, there is a "father factor" in nearly all of the social issues facing America today. The good news is more fathers want to be active in the lives of their children.

WHAT IS FATHERS FIRST?

Fathers First is an organizational movement that seeks to inspire, mobilize and equip fathers to become good influences in the lives of their children for life.

Acting as a community resource, Fathers First collaborates with government agencies, community organizations, groups and individuals to provide education, guidance and advocacy.

WHAT WE DO
