The Turning Point Pregnancy Resource Center recently launched a new initiative called “Brothers in Arms,” a fatherhood program with one mission: to equip fathers with practical skills through consistent and respectful instruction and engagement.
This mission is a far cry from the harsh reality faced by many fathers; many times, men attempt to salvage a relationship and try to be the best father they can. But plenty of factors conspire against responsible fatherhood, including fear, uncertainty and even external pressures from peers, friends & family. The path to fatherhood is fraught with hazards, especially for young men without strong guidance and spiritual fortitude.
Turning Point’s Brother in Arms ministry enterprise provides life skills & lessons, financial guidance, mentorship opportunities, father-based resources and much more.
Brothers in Arms: Fighting Back Against the Fatherless Generation
Children who grow up without fathers are more likely to endure hardships other kids don’t. For instance, poverty rates among children without a father in the home are much higher than children who are fortunate enough to have a dad present. Crime, child abuse and incarceration rates are also correlated with the absence of a father.
By any measure, the lack of a father figure usually spells disaster for the children involved. Turning Point is helping turn the tide, however – and we’re looking for willing participants in our new program. In order to make meaningful impact, we’re taking the fight to the “fatherless generation” – and it starts right here in San Diego County.
Who can benefit from TPPRC’s Brothers in Arms program?
- Teenage fathers – young men are more likely to begin the fatherless cycle before they even realize it.
- Men who were abandoned themselves – the fatherlessness cycle can be a tough habit to break
- High school dropouts
- Men with spiritual questions – seeking answers means knowing which questions to ask; having a support team like Turning Point is helpful.
At Turning Point, our focus is on women and men. Our Brothers in Arms initiative is for any man looking to become a better father – and a better person.
