Building noble legacies of
fatherhood – assisting fathers in
achieving self-sufficiency and in
strengthening families to improve
the life chances of children.


Each father we serve loves,
supports, encourages, and
actively participates in his
family. Furthermore, each
individual and family we serve
has a stable and healthy home
environment and a productive
and fulfilling livelihood.

Father’s Day


For a second year, Fathers and Families
Center postponed its annual Faces of
Fatherhood luncheon due to COVID. This
event that has been traditionally held on
the Friday before Father’s Day is our
biggest fundraiser. However, our
supporters still believed in us – and in the
impact we make – and supported our
Father’s Day Campaign….and for that
trust and belief in our mission…we say

thank you.
