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.
