Dad’s Making A Difference Holds Cookout Oct. 1

  • Monday, September 26, 2022

First Things First, Dad’s Making A Difference program, will host a cookout Oct.1 at Booker T. Washington State Park from 3-6 p.m. This event is free for dads and kids of any age. There will be food, music and other citywide organizations.

Dad’s Making A Difference is a "transformative" 13-week program for dads. Each week,
these men join a small group of dads for a 90-minute session, offering guidance in:

? Navigating the child support and legal systems;
? Obtaining a steady job;
? Seeing their children more often and; and
? Learning how to better relate to their child and child’s mother.

"These men discover the value of their role as dads and how to build strong connections with
their children," officials said.

"I’m a better man because First Things First took the time to help me in ways I didn’t know I
needed to be helped," said James, a 2019 graduate of Dad’s Making A Difference.
