TORRI J. EVANS-BARTON PH.D

A transplant from Kalamazoo, Michigan, Dr. Torri J. Evans-Barton currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia where she is the Founder & CEO of The Fatherless Generation Foundation.
 
Growing up in a single parent household, Torri faced many adversities adding tremendous devastation to her life. Those devastations emphasized the fact she needed her father.  In 2003, Dr. Torri J. decided to follow her heart to restore her family, which meant going in search of the father she had never known. At the end of her search, she found her father along with twelve brothers and sisters, seventy-six nieces and nephews and now 16 great-nieces and nephews. 
 
Reuniting with her father incited an incredible burden.  The burden Dr. Torri J. carried was her realization there were other fatherless children who desired reconciliation with their absent fathers.   No longer a burden but a full-time mission to reunite fatherless children with their fathers. 
 
In 2009 Dr. Torri J. launched The Fatherless Generation Foundation (TFGF). TFGF is a non-profit organization headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia reuniting fatherless children and their fathers all while providing the resources and services that strengthen, support, and elevate a commitment to fatherhood and family values providing services to 89 cities within 32 states. Our services include Husband & Wife Team Mentor Teams, Beyond Fatherless Peer Groups hosted in The Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Tutoring through Kumon, and at the helm of the organization is the Commitment to Fatherhood Program.  Since conception, TFGF has hosted almost 45,000 children through their Peer Groups, mentored 205 fatherless children through our Husband & Wife Mentor Teams, and reunited 1892 fatherless children with their biological fathers!
