• The Milwaukee Fatherhood Initiative hosts 11th Annual Fatherhood Summit

    October 14, 2016


    On October 7 and October 8, 2016 Mayor Tom Barrett
    presented The Milwaukee Fatherhood Initiatives’ “11th
    Annual Fatherhood Summit.” The two-day event was
    held at Greater New Birth Church, 8237 W. Silver Spring
    Drive. This year’s theme was “Planting Seeds to Grow
    Stronger Fathers and Families,” and reflected the efforts
    of the Fatherhood Initiative to strengthen families in our
    great city by supporting the men in our community with
    services, and outreach to strengthen them to become
    better fathers. Among the ways the Fatherhood Initiative
    offers support is through self-improvement workshops,
    employment opportunities in and around the city,
    driver’s license recovery assessments, child support case
    reviews, job training opportunities, education services
    (GED, HSED, trades, CDL, etc.), health information
    and screenings, expungement supportive services, and
    family court services (bankruptcies, child placement,
    etc.). The day also featured a special tribute to longtime
    fatherhood advocate and radio personality the late Eric
    Von. Pictured at the event (from left) are Milwaukee
    Fatherhood Initiative co-director Dennis C. Walton, and
    Milwaukee Municipal court judge and keynote speaker
    Derek Mosley.
