A Time to Celebrate Fathers and Father Figures

This weekend is a special time to celebrate fathers and father figures, and here at DePelchin, we are proud of our work to support fathers and the critical role they play in children’s lives.

Much of our work at DePelchin centers on helping parents, from the support we provide to foster families to the classes we provide parents and the counseling we make available to the families we serve. Some of our most popular programs focus specifically on serving fathers. We give fathers strategies that will help them care for children, communicate, and partner with other adults and family members to provide a supportive environment for their children. In fact, earlier this month, DePelchin hosted a two-day summit to provide fathers a chance to learn and fellowship with others. More than 100 people attended, and they heard from experts and had a great chance to share their experiences with others navigating the familiar challenges of fatherhood. Thanks to the support of some generous sponsors and donors, the event was a real success and we hope to bring it back again next year.

If you or someone you know would like more information about our programs for parents, please visit this page on our website.

This weekend, we celebrate the fathers, step-fathers, grandfathers, and so many others who love and care for the children around them. We also want to celebrate the DePelchin supporters whose generosity allows us to offer all programs that create and nurture stronger families. The support of our donors allows us to reach more and more families with all of our programs for fathers, mothers, other family members, and (most importantly) children and youth.

Happy Father’s Day! And to anyone who helps provide a safe and loving home for children: Thank you.
