Our Fatherhood program is in research and development phase.  The purpose of the research is to increase life skill and healthy relationships in African American men ages 18-30 in the South Union community.

27.1% of the household in the OST/South Union area are single-mother. According to the National Center for Fathering, children from fatherless homes are more likely to be poor, become involved in drug and alcohol abuse, drop out of school, and suffer from health and emotional problems. Boys are more likely to become involved in crime, and girls are more likely to become pregnant as teens (National Center for Fathering, 2007).

The subsequent program will be developed for young men and women. Program is slated to launch in the Fall of 2015
