Fatherhood: A Celebration SAVE THE DATE

Greetings Alliance Members,

The Georgia Department of Human Services is sponsoring an event to celebrate fathers in the Atlanta community on June 18, 2016 at Adamsville Recreational Center.

The goal of “Fatherhood: A Celebration” is to celebrate men and the role that fathers play in a child’s life. The event is also meant to make parents aware of a program that can help fathers who are struggling to pay their child support get the help they need to provide for their children financially.


We are planning for 300 fathers and their children to attend this event, and already, we have secured several partners in the nonprofit and for profit communities to make the event a success. The celebration activities will include a live radio broadcast, food and giveaways for the dads and their children. Additionally, there will be face painting and a bounce house, as well as many other youth-friendly activities that will make the event a great day for fathers seeking to spend the day with their children.


If you are planning to bring a group of men, which I hope you will, please notify me with a projected number.
