Pennsylvania Greater Father Family Involvement Campaign

OUR CAMPAIGN GOALS


Raise the consciousness of all Pennsylvanians that fathers can make tremendous contributions to the well-being of Children and Families 

 

Educate and urge each branch of Pennsylvania’s state government to adopt and institutionalize a father inclusive posture, toward men within families; and to support the active participation of fathers in Commonwealth child and family programming 

 

Convince the Pennsylvania General Assembly to establish in statue a Pennsylvania Commission that promotes greater father family involvement in the lives of children and families, and the removal of state systematic impediments that work against such behavior

“…Just like mothers, fathers have many unique things to offer their children. They are role models, caretakers, providers, teachers and advocates. When children have the benefit of access and involvement with both their mother and father they are more likely to excel in school, achieve emotional well-being and be less likely to engage in risky behavior…”

“Pennsylvania faces a variety of barriers to father involvement and child well-being, but the state is well-positioned to not only overcome these barriers but also become a national leader in the movement to increase father presence and greater father involvement. People and organizations across Pennsylvania are motivated to change policies and practices that impede fathers’ involvement. This momentum and desire to maintain family connections especially during the coronavirus pandemic is an invaluable resource for Pennsylvania.”
