About Calling All Dads

The Idea of Being An Active Father

We know that strong families are the foundation of a healthy community and so the National African American Male Wellness Agency started the fatherhood initiative. We want to make sure that black dads are emotionally supported, gainfully employed, mentally sound, physically fit, financially accountable and substantially educated.

The fatherhood initiative is a multifaceted approach to strengthening the father’s position in black homes. Through strong programming, engagement, outreach and resource provisions, the Agency works to develop the expression of black fatherhood; empower black dads; prepare black dads to provide for their children and get them ready to enter the world; and develop black dads to be the greatest utility in their communities.
