2021 Foursome for Fatherhood Wrap-up

The 2021 Foursomes for Fatherhood Golf Classic was a success on Monday, June 14 at TPC River Highlands, thanks to the generosity of golfers and sponsors who helped gross more than $93,000 for The Village’s Fatherhood Engagement Services!

Kids Go Further with Fathers

Many of the young fathers helped by The Village have not had a father or even a mentor to serve as a positive role model.

Here is why children need fathers in their lives:

  • 66% of African American children, 35% of Latinx children and 27% of Caucasian children live apart from their fathers
  • 85% of children with behavioral problems come from fatherless homes
  • Fatherless children are twice as likely to drop out of school
  • Youths are more at risk of substance abuse without a highly-involved father
