Fathers Incorporated has worked in the field of responsible fatherhood for 11 years. It continues to be our mission to elevate and improve the well-being of children and families by the positive engagement of involved fathers. Many of today's social ills can be connected to absence of father engagement. In contrast, research shows that fathers are more engaged today than ever.
Real Dads Read (RDR) is aimed at elementary and middle school aged children (K-8) and their fathers/male caregivers with the goals of 1) encouraging children to develop a love of reading, 2) improving children’s literacy skills and educational outcomes, and 3) strengthening bonds between fathers/caregivers and their children. Real Dads Read is a two-generation approach to engaging and improving outcomes for both men and the children for which they are responsible.
When fathers are involved in the lives of their children, especially their education, children learn more, perform better in school, and exhibit healthier behavior. Even when fathers do not share a home with their children, their active involvement can have a lasting and positive impact. There are countless ways to be involved in your child’s education at all ages.
The program has four engagement levels.
Implementation of a book drive in Barbershops throughout Atlanta
Creating small libraries in Barbershops
Creating school-based community groups to meet once a month in reading activities
Creating a social media platform to impact the current narrative of black fathers
We believe that Real Dads Read will be a great project in Atlanta (eventually other cities) to assist with the images of narrative change for Black Men/Fathers, their children and families. The project is a perfect opportunity to help elevate a counter narrative by providing a great two generational approach to services for parents and children.
