We love being Maternity Care Coalition (MCC), but let it be known: We love working with dads, too! Empowering parents as caretakers, advocates, and teachers for their children is what we do.
One way we are there for fathers and father-figures as they navigate their parenting journey is through our MOMobile Healthy Start Fatherhood Initiative program. The Fatherhood Initiative program provides case management, parenting groups, and life skills workshops on co-parenting, child development, communication, conflict resolution, workforce development, and job skills for fathers, male partners, and other father figures. This program not only provides information to fathers about how to support their child’s development but gives them the tools, social support, and confidence to do it.
Father’s Day will be here before we know it. And so, too, will the official release of MCC’s first-ever children’s book, You, Me, Kindness and Equality! Written in collaboration with local author Nahjee Grant, You, Me, Kindness and Equality! is a bilingual English and Spanish board book for children of all ages, especially children 0 – 3.
Written as a fluid poem, the story follows Lizzy and her Grandpa Joe through a day in Philadelphia.
To prepare for the launch this July, we’re using the book’s back cover as this year’s Father’s Day card! Make your donation – of absolutely any size – and we’ll send personalized Father’s Day cards and/or eCards on your behalf in time for Father’s Day.
Your contribution goes directly towards enabling fathers and caretakers in Southeastern Pennsylvania to set goals for themselves and their children, regardless of race, class, or gender.
