Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 14, 2009
The Fatherless Generation Foundation Inc. is an organization purposed to bringing Fathers back to the home. "The Fatherless Generation is on the rise and if not stopped, our world will continue to fall deeper and deeper into the social cataclysms we are facing," states Torri J. Evans, Founder and Director of The Fatherless Generation Foundation.
Currently, there are 24 million people living in the United States who grew up or who are growing up fatherless according to the National Fatherhood Initiative. "This epidemic has transcended the boundaries of race, background and even economic status. And by bringing fathers back to the home... we will change our current society as we know it", says Torri J. Evans.
"The Fatherless Generation Foundation provides children between the ages of 5-18 who are growing up in a single parent household with a Fatherly Mentor who is trained to encourage and instill wisdom into a child's soul," says Renee Greenard; Intake Director. The Fatherless Generation Foundation also provides Tutoring, Peer Groups, Scholarship Programs and Recreational Events as well as a select group of services such as Emergency Financial Assistance, Family Counseling and Parenting Classes for the single parent. "One of our goals is to assist in changing the foundation of this family dynamic. We are organized to provide an advantage for those who would otherwise be at a disadvantage", says Torri J. Evans.
Stacy Robinson a single mother of two living in Fulton County states, "Fatherless Generation Foundation has provided both of my children with Fatherly Mentors. These men are not just simply someone for my children to hang out with, but they have influenced my children to want more out of their lives. They are truly a part of our family."
The Fatherless Generation Foundation has made the decision to take greater action instead of just sitting back and watching the lives of those we love fall apart.
On January 6, 2009 there were over 500 families on the docket for dispossessory in Fulton County within Metro-Atlanta alone. "This number is truly alarming," states Torri J. Evans. "Initially, the foreclosure crisis was the issue at hand, but now renters are even feeling the economic crunch and are not able to afford their monthly rental payments due to job losses and cut backs," remarks Torri J. Evans.
"I had been on my job for 10 years before I was laid off. Each month the money would stretch less and less. And in February of 2009, I was unsure how I was going to make up the difference for my rental payment that was due. I contacted The Fatherless Generation Foundation and they made up the difference for that month and also paid the month of March. This allowed me the time necessary to get back on my feet," says Michelle Richardson a single mother of four of Dekalb County.
"The dispossessory crisis is just a testament to how bad things have gotten for some. Loss of jobs, causes loss of homes, which causes an increase in homelessness within our city and within our nation," says Torri J. Evans.
"We are asking for individuals to donate their best. If your best is $1.00... please donate it! Every penny we receive will count towards assisting those who really need it," states Torri J. Evans. Torri J. Evans also states, "Your immediate response will ensure that someone is able to stay in their home. Please find it in your hearts to give someone the 'MIRACLE OF ONE MORE DAY'."
"If we cannot find it in our hearts to give someone 'The Miracle of One More Day]', then we really are a nation divided and out of touch with the reality of the fact that our home could be next," says Renee Grenard.
To give someone "The Miracle of One More Day," please contact the group at 678-954-4952 or 404-343-8490.
