Fathers and their children participate in many father-child activities sponsored by Midlands Fatherhood Coalition. This father and his children participated in a recent “Daddy and Me 5K”.

A loving, supportive father helps children make positive choices and have brighter futures. Children with absent fathers are four times more likely to live in poverty, seven times more likely to be teen parents, and more likely to face abuse, have behavioral problems, commit crimes, drop out of school, and abuse drugs. Sometimes even a father physically living in the home is emotionally detached; a father living apart from his children can be positively engaged with his child.
The mission of Midlands Fatherhood Coalition is to engage fathers in the positive support of their children and provide community-based programs and support groups for dads, free of charge. Midlands Fatherhood Coalition offers job coaching and employment services. Many dads served by MFC did not have engaged fathers of their own, so the wholistic personal services offered empower men to improve their lives and their relationship with their children.
