Power of Fathers is grounded in the belief that every father has the power within them to improve their lives, their families, and their communities. Therefore, we focus on building fathers’ POWER BASE.
We define power as knowing your Person, your Place, and your Purpose. When a father knows who he is (person), understands how he fits into this world (place), and realizes what talents and gifts he possesses to improve the world (purpose), he truly has the power to be a force for positive change.
- To create impactful and sustainable change, we cannot focus on just helping fathers. Power of Fathers uses a multi-faceted approach to improve outcomes on three levels: Individual, Organizational, and Policy/Systems.
- INDIVIDUAL: We help fathers individually address their specific issues address their specific issues to improve their life situations, their relationships with their children, and their interactions with their co-parents.
- ORGANIZATIONAL: We must improve the organizations and agencies that provide the vital services and supports fathers need.
- POLICY/SYSTEM: We also must improve the policies and systems that adversely impact fathers’ ability to support themselves, their families and their communities.
