COCKTAIL RECEPTION SPONSOR
Since 2010, this best ball tournament has raised more than $800,000 to support The Village’s programs that provide fathers with the skills and support they need to be active and effective parents for their children. Our Fatherhood Engagement Services empower fathers to strengthen bonds and parenting relationships with their children through intensive outreach, parenting education, case management and group programming supplemented with ongoing support to help each father through his specific circumstances.
This year we will be celebrating 11 years of having this tournament with special thanks to those who have been with us since the beginning.
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
2022 Foursome for Fatherhood Wrap-up
The 2022 Foursomes for Fatherhood Golf Classic was a success on Monday, June 13 at TPC River Highlands. It was a beautiful day to play golf and come together for a great cause! More than 120 golfers participated, and together with the support of our sponsors, helped gross nearly $100,000 to support life-changing services that ignite the power of fatherhood.
The tournament directly impacts single dads in our Fatherhood Engagement Services (FES) program by helping them build the skills they need to strengthen their parenting bonds, support their children and be a powerful presence in their lives.
