THE PROBLEM: FATHERLESSNESS

“Today for the first time in America’s history, the average expected experience of childhood now includes living in the absence of one’s natural father.” This includes a staggering 72% of African American and 53% of Latino children being born out of wedlock. Moreover, the number of Caucasian children born out of wedlock has grown by 300% since 1975. Fatherless children are:

• 2x as likely to drop out of high school
• 2x as likely to end up in jail
• 2x as likely to abuse alcohol
• 4x as likely to have emotional or behavioral problems
