Did you know that there are thousands of families in our communities who are in need of fathers who are engaged, empowered and encouraged to be involved in the lives of their families and community? Did you know that many of the fatherhood programs in Virginia don't have enough capacity or volunteers to serve these families? Did you know that MBK is a small 501 c 3 non-profit that has a large each and that we rely on grants and in kind donations from businesses, organizations and individual donors to provide our services?
We want to engage men by helping them gain higher self efficacy resulting in better social behaviors, more effective parenting, better relationships and life skills.
We want to empower men by helping them through the transition of boyhood to manhood and manhood to fatherhood by equipping them with essential tools for maintaining consistent emotional and financial connection to their families and community to include:
1) developing healthy relationships
2) exercising responsible sexual behaviors
3) modeling healthy relationships for other men
We want to encourage men by helping them complete secondary education and pursue college, career, stable employment and helping them develop the ability to make long and short range decisions based on principles of good citizenship and equipping them with the essential knowledge and skills for maintaining consistent emotional and financial connection with their children.
Please consider making a tax deductible donation to our “Manhood in Action” campaign. The goal is raise $10,000 by December 31, 2018 to engage, empower and encourage more fathers in Virginia to move fatherhood forward!
Thank you in advance for your generosity!
