Fathers

A father’s value is tremendous. That’s why it’s so important for us to help fathers realize the important contributions they can make.

 

Research shows that when fathers are involved, their children are:

  • 2 times more likely to go to college
  • 80% less likely to spend time in jail
  • 75% less likely to experience teen pregnancy

When a dad isn’t there, it’s a different picture.


Children in father-absent homes account for:

  • 71% of all high school dropouts
  • 90% of homeless and runaway children
  • 63% of youth suicides

Becoming an engaged dad has benefits for fathers, too:

  • Engaged dads set goals and achieve greater success.
  • Healthy habits become more important.
  • Self-esteem increases as dads see their value.
