GOAL: To promote MANHOOD by developing BROTHERHOOD and taking back our COMMUNITIES WITH LOVE….

Fathers Alive in The Hood is dedicated to providing ALL males an avenue, in which, they can be challenged to grow to epitomize the essence of MANHOOD. F.A.I.T.H participates in many community initiatives, such as the “Jegna” program, employment initiative programs, gang intervention and anti-gun violence Peace Walks. F.A.I.T.H collaborates with other organizations that support developing a positive community environment. *We believe men are critical to the restoration of our communities. We want the men of F.A.I.T.H to show positive presence of “manhood” when they go into neighborhoods, schools, religious institutes or communities to provide the presence of “fatherhood”. Statistically, youth who grow up without a “paternal” role model have a tendency to become more at risk for dropping out of school, get involved in drug use, gang involvement, have children out of wedlock and are inclined to become incarcerated. It is the mission of Fathers Alive In the Hood to turn the tide of these maladies by promoting positive “fatherhood” in our communities.

1. Fatherhood (what is it like to be a father)
