Fathers and Families Coalition of America in Review
In 2014, Fathers & Families Coalition of America goes into a pivotal year. We had a successful 15th Annual National Fatherhood & Families Conference in Las Vegas with 400 registered attendees but more impact came from social media-virtual participation! We now have over 136,000 viewer minutes on our FFCA Live and over 30,000 viewer minutes logged in during our national conference week! We just had a tremendous program to use as on-going commitment for improvement. The core curricula has been established with faculty from England, Puerto Rico, and throughout the United States. Participation has come from all continents and now we will begin to launch curricula for Virtual Attendance and Classrooms. Join us as a Official Affiliate as we continue to develop as a professional membership, research & program evaluation, technical assistance, professional development and capacity building assistance agency.
In the past two years,our coalition has increased its impact on an international platform. We create a special foundation for professional development, promotion of strengthening families, wellness initiatives for children, mothers, fathers and communities with over 50 National Affiliates and Four (4) International Affiliates, as well as over 100 Member Organizations. As I have led the vision for these programs, we were fortunate in the previous fiscal year to support organizations serving over 16 million individuals. Professional Development to over 1200 individuals; Program Leadership with over 4,000 hours of Continued Education extended through FFCA and approved by the National Association of Social Workers; Connections to Peers, Community and Leaders highlighted by FFCA featured at the U.S. Congressional Black Caucus 41st Annual Conference; and the first ever Hispanic Regional Institute in any Latino Nation as in partnership, we went to Puerto Rico and established the first Hispanic Fathers & Families Conference that is an accompaniment to our Annual National Fatherhood & Families Conference. Finally, we initiated the development of Vets Chat Internet Radio Show and apps for iPhone and Androids that focus on engaging fathers and families globally…and so much more to come.
