On June 14, fathers will be celebrated in the comfortable environment of their local barbershops while participating in an open discussion of issues facing fathers today. Healthy You, Inc. and the Teen Center will facilitate the conversation.
Visit one of the participating shops for a haircut and information on how to be a healthy, active father. The four shops participating are Blend Masters, Bladez Barbershop, Blending Endz and Thaddeus Barbershop.
This event is part of the national campaign through President Obama’s Fatherhood Initiative, Fatherhood Buzz. This event is 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.
