Manhood Programe For Promoting Healthy Families
GENESIS in Milwaukee, Inc. in conjunction with the
National Fatherhood Initiative has introduced PROJECT MANHOOD in an effort to promote
healthy families and the roles fathers play.
We take a close look at fathers that are returning home from incarceration and view them as some of the most invisible and vulnerable parents in the Milwaukee County.
MANY HAVE GROWN UP IN
- Difficult circumstances
- Low incomes or benefits
- Have few academic qualifications and relatively poor career prospects
- Homeless, or live in cramped, temporary accommodation
Yet most have something in common – something they also share with the young mothers of their children.
An overwhelming wish for a better
life for the children they adore.
Positively involved dads can be a hugely important resource for their children and also for the mothers of their children. Our research shows that young mothers who feel supported by their baby’s father adjust better to motherhood and behave more positively toward their children.
