New Directory: Helping Hands for Fathers

Posted by on July 16, 2004

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has reported a trend over the last four decades of a dramatic increase in the number of children growing up in homes without fathers. In 1960, almost 10 million children did not live with their fathers and today, the number is nearly 25 million. More than one-third of these children will not see their fathers at all during the course of the year.

This resource directory provides information on numerous father and other support services throughout Philadelphia. It is our hope that professionals in the child welfare and social service systems and the community-at-large will be able to use this directory to access father programs and other family support services.
