End Father Absence

 
Children with absentee fathers is quite possibly the most relevant issue facing our communities today!

Support Responsible Father's work to redefine fatherhood and break the cycle.  

The National Fatherhood Initiative, an advocacy group for fatherhood, has very compelling data showing the social issues and real consequences of father absence.  The need to help fathers be involved with their children has never been greater.  The annual cost we all bare for fatherlessness is staggering and on the rise.

Fathers are more than just providers of money.  Children need fathers to be protectors, nurturers, and teachers.  All fathers can use our 10 simple ways to be a dad today!

If you're a father and you aren't sure what to do, contact us.  We can help!

DAD

Walk a little plainer, Dad,
said a little boy so frail.
I'm following in your footsteps
and I don't want to fail.
Sometimes your steps are very plain,
sometimes they are hard to see.
So walk a little plainer, Dad,
for you are leading me.

I know that once you walked
this way, many years ago
and what you did along the way, 
I'd really like to know.
For sometimes when I am tempted,
I don't know what to do,
so walk a little plainer, Dad,
for I must follow you.

Someday when I'm grown up,
you are like I want to be.
Then I will have a little boy
who will want to follow me.
And I would want to lead him right,
and help him to be true.
So walk a little plainer, Dad, 
for we must follow you.
