Fathers Incorporated was awarded $10,000 to expand and strengthen its Real Dads Read program in Atlanta, GA. The grant issued by the Community Foundation of Greater Atlanta's Literacy For All Fund will support the implementation of programs, projects or efforts that approach literacy from a multi generational perspective.
Currently Real Dads Read has 27 libraries in barbershops around the city of Atlanta. This fall both Fathers Incorporated and its partnerFurthering Fathering will seek to expand by creating Real Dads Read Literacy Clubs in schools, headstart centers, day care facilities and libraries. "This grant is evidence of the support already shown by the Anne E. Foundation, Kelly Family Cuidiú Foundation and the United Way of Greater Atlanta for improving proficiency of our children by engaging dads," say Kenneth Braswell; Executive Director of Fathers Incorporated.
