HOW TO GET INVOLVED
VOLUNTEER TO BE A FATHER
Helping Americas Children
Americas children need fathers, and if you decide to lend a helping hand to FLSDA you could be involved in teaching a young boy or girl how to stand up and be assertive, how to stand up for things that they feel are important, how to recover discouragement or defeat, or how to take action and solve problems when they are emotionally overwhelmed. By discussing with them when you struggled, when you had doubts, or when you did something courageous, It can help a young child learn how to steer the boat that is their life, by letting them see how you steered yours. It doesn't matter what your financial situation is every son or daughter needs a Father.
Start with Something Simple
Children who don’t get enough to eat — especially during their first three years — begin life at a serious disadvantage. When they’re hungry, children are more likely to be hospitalized and they face higher risks of health conditions like anemia and asthma. And as they grow up, kids who struggling to get enough to eat are more likely to have problems in school and other social situations.We at FLSDA have a responsibility to the next generation, to give our lost sons & daughters every opportunity to succeed. Which in turn will strengthen American communities. That’s why feeding children facing hunger is a main priority of FLSDA, but we can’t do it without help from people like you.
One day at a Time
Poverty in America is highest among children, with nearly 16 million children growing up below the poverty line. More than 30 percent of minority children today live in poverty. And almost half of American children who are born to parents on the bottom rung of the income ladder remain at the bottom as adults. These children tend not to have the range of opportunities that have long characterized the American experience. For example, the aggregate impact of child poverty in the United States leads to reduced skills development and economic productivity, increased crime, and poorer health, all of which is conservatively estimated by recent research to cost the United States more than $620 billion per year. It is our duty at FLSDA to stop this poverty cycle recession, change the trajectory of our youth, and transform our communities into flourishing neighborhoods that enrich our sons and daughters and give them the economic opportunities they deserve.
"And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord."
