Project Fatherhood (sm) named beneficiary in the fourth of the Gumbo anthology series. "Project Fatherhood and Childrens Institute is excited about the possibilites of this new resource to heighten awareness. This consciousness raising will make a huge difference for generations to come and we're excited about being a part of it", Dr. Hershel Swinger -founder of Project Fatherhood.

Fathers are vital to a healthy childhood.

•Studies show that children without fathers are more likely to live in poverty, use drugs, drop out of school, develop emotional and behavioral problems, and be incarcerated.
•The presence of participating nurturing fathers has a profound impact on children’s health and well-being.
To address the problem of absentee fathers, Childrens' Institute Inc. created Project Fatherhood (sm) in 1996 to re-engage low-income fathers, particularly in urban settings, in the care and upbringing of their children. Through therapy, support, parenting education and other services, fathers learn to be more loving, responsible parents and active participants in their children’s lives.

Over his career, Dr. Hershel Swinger had long observed that fathers were most often left out of programs designed to strengthen troubled low-income urban families and prevent child abuse and neglect. But he firmly believed that fathers wanted what was best for their kids. To that end, he devised Project Fatherhood SM to give fathers the tools to participate actively in the rearing and well-being of their children. They report over 40% of America's households are families without fathers. Help change the statistics, make a difference and support the efforts of this book and Project Fatherhood(sm).
