JUNE 18 to 22

Join us for our June Educational Awareness Week: Theme - The Importance of Fatherhood

Meet at Noon for one hour on the sidewalk in front of Met Hospital. Signs will be provided.

Parenting is typically a two-person job. When a child has both the mother and father to rely on, they are able to prosper. Because of this, we recognize the importance of fatherhood in June (also the month of Father's Day).

Visit here for some resources on the effects a fatherless home has on a child.

Dads need to stand up and protect life!
