America is facing a father absence crisis. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 19.7 million children, more than 1 in 4, live without a father in their home. Consequently, nearly all social ills facing America today have a father factor.
Research shows when a child is raised in a father-absent home, he or she is:
4 x more likely to live in poverty.
7 x more likely to have teen pregnancy.
2 x more likely to suffer obesity.
2 x more likely to drop out of high school.
More likely to commit crime.
More likely to go to prison.
More likely to face abuse and neglect.
Men who grow up with absent fathers are more likely to become absent fathers.
Women who grow up with absent fathers are more likely to have children with absent father.
Responsible Fathers needs your help to break the cycle. Fifty dollars ($50) allows us to provide an evidenced based program to an absent father for 12 weeks. Your contributions make a difference and every little bit helps.
