Fathers change children’s lives.
Fathers change children’s lives. YOU can help change the life of a father.
Today, 1 out of 3 children lives without his/her father in the home, and many low-income fathers are unavailable because they are working multiple jobs to support their families.
Research shows a father's parenting plays a critical role in childhood growth and development, including:
- Positive self-esteem
- Lower rates of depression and anxiety
- Greater academic success
Public Health Solutions – the largest public health nonprofit in New York City – helps improve the health of low-income families and children. Our services are integrated into high-risk communities, providing support to 30,000+ young families each year. Dads for Dads – a NEW initiative - will expand upon our outreach to address issues specific to fathers.
But, we need your help in making Dads for Dads possible.
Consider making a very special gift to honor your father, husband or loved one.
