Celebrating Fatherhood

A growing body of evidence shows that children without fathers actively involved in their lives are significantly more likely to suffer from depression and other mental illness, drug and alcohol abuse, teen pregnancy, school failure, poverty, delinquency, crime and other negative life factors.  Conversely, when fathers are actively engaged, children are far more likely to achieve success in school, careers, relationships and other aspects of life.

Established in 2013, the purpose of the Alameda County Fathers Corps (ACFC) is to promote and support fathers and father figures to be meaningfully engaged with their children and families.  ACFC works to advocate for family service providers to provide father friendly services and to assist fathers in strengthening their parenting skills.

As a collaborative effort with First 5 Alameda County, Alameda County Health Care Services Agency, and Alameda County Social Services Agency, ACFC is proud to host the inaugural Fatherhood Summit in the first quarter of 2019.  This event will be the first-of-its-kind in the San Francisco Bay Area region and we invite you and your organization to participate as one of our inaugural, premier sponsors.

With your partnership we can expand our reach to continue the movement to empower our men as fathers, nurturers, caregivers, community role models and leaders.  In support of our efforts to strengthen our community one family and one father at a time, enclosed for your review and consideration is our sponsorship opportunities package highlighting the benefits and levels of engagement.

Our goal for the summit is to attract 1,000 fathers and father figures to engage in a safe, judgment-free, supportive space.  Summit participants will attend father-focused workshops and hear from some of the nation’s leading voices on fatherhood.  Your support will help us in both planning and executing the Summit, and will also support the launch of key father-focused programs and services by ACFC.

SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES are available.  If you have questions please feel free to contact our event consultant LaNiece Jones, LA Jones & Associates at laniece@lajonesmedia.com or 510.568.5563.
