Former NFL Player Invites Current and Former Professional Athletes to support Fatherhood Programs That Help To End Fatherlessness
Rick Jennings II, former professional football player with The Oakland Raiders, The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and The San Francisco 49er has made a donation of $1000 and issues an invitation to current and former Professional Athletes to consider a donation of any amount, to support The Center for Fathers and Families' vision to End Fatherless. This vision will be accomplished by providing programs and services to strengthen families and build communities with a focus on teaching men the importance of being a father.
Funds from this campaign will be used to:
• Support Fatherhood Workshops, Conferences, Classes and Special Events
• Support Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) programs, Hands-on Mentoring, and Educational Enrichment Activities for low income children enrolled in our Making After School Time Enriching Rewarding and Successful (MASTERS) program.
Since 1994, The Center for Fathers and Families has been responding to the needs of fathers and fatherless families. Rick has been the CEO since 1997. Our mission is to strengthen families and build communities in the Sacramento, California region by offering a network of programs and services that lead to family growth, enrichment, and empowerment.
We feel that our program design can be used as a template for similar programs around the country.
