Fatherhood Buzz Coming Jan. 24
On January 24, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., local barbers will offer advice and encouragement to fathers through the national Fatherhood Buzz program. Fathers are invited to visit a participating location with their families for information on how to stay healthy in the new year. Healthy You, Inc. will facilitate the conversation. This event is part of the national campaign through President Obama’s Fatherhood Initiative, Fatherhood Buzz, typically done four times per year. Fatherlessness is a growing crisis in America, one that underlies many of the challenges that families are facing. When dads aren't around, young people are more likely to drop out of school, use drugs, be involved in the criminal justice system, and become young parents themselves.
