Ridgewood School's Ties & Tiaras Raises Money for Urban Light Ministries Fatherhood Programs
When the girls at Ridgewood School decided to hold a Father-Daughter dance they never knew the impact of that decision. Deepening the relationship with their own fathers was the primary goal but they didn't really understand it was up to the dads to build the girls self-image and what it means to be treated like a princess. They also did not realize that when they chose Urban Light Ministries as their organization to donate their proceeds of the event they were also touching the lives of many other families and building the bonds between fathers and their children. The proceeds raised will be used for ULM's work with fathers and the Father Love program. The last Father Love workshop that was just completed this week touched more than 45 male participants. Some were dads others were learning what it means to be a POPS (protector, order keeper, provider and stabilizer) for their families. Within the 13 weeks, there was an improvement of over 22% of the awareness of what it means to be an effective POPS. Thanks, Ridgewood School for the generosity and making an impact.
