Each child is different.
Each situation is different.
We are here to help you connect with meaningful education and answers to questions. You are not alone. We are all in this together.
BJ lives in the neighborhood of our West focus area. Some of these census tracts in this area are 68% fatherless. His story is common.
BJ lost his job. He works doing whatever he can pick up. His nine year old daughter wanders what will happen. Will she go into foster care like her friend? Will her drug addicted mom take her in? How long can they keep the house? What will we eat tonight?
BJ is just a dad who never had a dad. He doesn’t know what a dedicated and healthy man looks like. He can.
With our help, we can join BJ to men that do have healthy families and situations. He can get a mentor to father him as a fatherless father. His family can be expanded to include some others to encourage and support.
A FEARLESS weekend for BJ is a jump start. Then he needs weekly encouragement and training. Then he needs friends to talk to and maybe an advisor and mentor.
That is what we do at the Shepherd Center. We are an approved outreach of The Community Transformation Initiative in network with the National Center For Fathering.
