Fathers are an important part
of a family.

Children in homes without fathers are almost four times as likely to be poor. They're also at greater risk of physical violence, gang involvement and teen pregnancy.

The Salvation Army's Fatherhood in Action program helps fathers take a more active role in their children's lives. Help keep families connected.


Poverty doesn't have to be generational.

The Salvation Army's Pathway of Hope program works to break the cycle of poverty and find ways to be successful.

Families who complete the program see an average increase in income of $4,000 per year. Help families rise above.
