FATHERLESSNESS IS ONE OF THE GREATEST SOCIAL PANDEMICS IN OUR WORLD!
1 out of 3 children grows up without their biological father in their home.
This creates emotional, psychological, and financial issues resulting in negative outcomes such as:
71% of fatherless children drop out of high school
85% of children who come from fatherless households exhibit behavioral disorders making them 20 times more likely to have a behavioral disorder
Fatherless Children are 5 times more likely to commit suicide
32 times more likely to run away
10 times more likely to abuse a chemical substance
20 times more likely to end up in prison
These are just some of the statistics as to why The Fatherless Generation Foundation Inc. (TFGF) was created. TFGF reunites fatherless children with their biological fathers all while providing the resources and services that strengthen, support and elevate a commitment to fatherhood and family values.
Our efforts go beyond talking about the statistics of fatherlessness to solving the problem through reunification and application of supporting fathers through their journey to building positive relationships with their children. With an out of the box method of providing legal, psychological, and emotional support to absent fathers we have been able to effectively restore fathers into the lives of their children. Through our Beyond Fatherless Peer Groups, TFGF is teaching fatherless children how to cope and then overcome the challenges of their fatherless journey.
