The four-hour conference of structured discussions will center around five critical areas. They are Morale (and Spirituality), Health, Education, Employment, and Public Policy. One of the goals of the meeting is to extend awareness of the crucial influence fathers can, and must have in their families, the workplace, and their communities. Another goal is to cultivate greater community and public agency collaboration for positive community impact and advocacy that supports long-term stability among fathers and families in metropolitan Atlanta, and across Georgia.
