We Provide Much-needed Support and Resources for Men and Single Fathers Who are Going Through a Rough Patch with the Goal to Reduce Mental Health Struggles, Violence & Suicide Rates.
We've worked with over 7000 men to date and are excited to move forward and work with many more. We've identified 7 major areas of stressors in a man's life. We believe that if proper, male-oriented, and targeted resources are offered in those high stressor areas, it can tremendously reduce the rate of violence in society, whether it's violence against the self (suicide), against an intimate partner, or children (domestic violence) or street violence.
Our focus at the moment is on building healthy families by providing mentoring and legal help for single fathers who are going through child custody battle.
Children need their fathers as much as their mothers for healthy development. Custody is one of the most important, complicated, and expensive issue single fathers face. If not handled properly, the father’s emotional, psychological, mental, and financial toll is catastrophic. It can lead to feelings of hopelessness, anger, and depression. The economic toll can cause unfavorable outcomes where fathers end up seeing their children a few hours a month.
Children need consistently present fathers, not biweekly visitors.
The consistent presence of fathers in children’s lives provides healthy and balanced emotional and physical health for both fathers and their children. Our organization’s primary mission is to reduce the male suicide mortality rate drastically. By offering resources and alleviating pressure during the most stressful events in men’s lives, we can dramatically improve our men’s mental, emotional, and physical well-being.
