The Father Love program is a personal study and instructor-facilitated 13-week discussion group based on the book written by Eli Williams. The objective of the discussion group is to listen, learn, encourage and enable fathers to become better Protectors, Order keepers, Providers, and Stabilizers (POPS) of their families.
There is a growing systemic problem in America: the need for a father in a child's life. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 24 million children in America -- one out of three -- live without their biological father in the home. Consequently, there is a "father factor" in nearly all the societal ills facing America today. The Father Love program provides a way of understanding the cause and providing a solution to growing the number of responsible fathers. The thirteen-week sessions inspire and enable fathers to reach their full potential as POPS.
The "Father Love" program improves participants' awareness of how to become a more effective "POPS" by over 22% as documented from a past class of over 26 participants. The program's effectiveness and testimonials can be reviewed in the latest published white paper. Click here to download a copy of the whitepaper.
