Every year we partner with the Rockford Housing Authority and Rockford Police Department to adopt children in need for Christmas. We have adopted over 3,000 children the last 5 years.
We partner with the Rockford Police Department one weekend a month to adopt at risk neighborhoods while providing clean up and block parties to connect with neighbors and lower crime rates.
HEAL Stands for Hope, Excel, Affirm, and Lead. This is our program for fatherless children. Our band of fathers partners with the Rockford Housing Authority and helps tutor and provide mentorship to children in need.
We host a Breakfast and Blanket Event every year for our homeless community. We collect winter gear and provide breakfast and supplies for our homeless, together.
In 2018 we launched a basketball league for youth without a father. The league is led by a community of fathers and coaches who require each participant to serve 4 hours of community service.
We offer a host of mentorship opportunities to fathers of all walks of life. We have fatherhood hangouts the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month from 7-8pm where we provide dinner and a safe place to meet new guys who happen to be Dads as well.
