“This group has provided them with better techniques and understanding of the importance of their roles in their children’s lives and how this group could really make a difference for many of these children in foster care." - Jerry Neal.

KVC Behavioral HealthCare, Inc. will honor participants from its Championship Fathering program at a Resolution Ceremony on June 13, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Trinity Community Church, 5010 Parallel Parkway, Kansas City, KS 66104. Mayor of Kansas City, Kansas Mark Holland will speak at the celebration dinner, which will be attended by the participants’ families and give participants an opportunity to share their resolutions with the group.
KVC’s Championship Fathering program is a fathering group-based on Carey Casey’s book Championship Fathering. The group's objective is to encourage fathers to become “Championship Fathers” for their children by loving, coaching, modeling for their children, encouraging other children, and enlisting other dads as Championship Fathers.
"This group has provided them with better techniques and understanding of the importance of their roles in their children’s lives and how this group could really make a difference for many of these children in foster care,” Jerry Neal, KVC Permanency Supervisor and Championship Fathering group leader, said.
KVC hopes that the creation of groups like this will help build stronger families and address the crisis of fatherlessness that is negatively affecting children in our society in many ways. This group is part of a larger movement happening in the United States, and the goal of the Kansas City-based National Center for Fathering is to recruit 6.5 million fathers to be Championship Fathers.
