Voice of the Fatherless Child will use entertainment as a form of intervention. The stage play “KIA Boyz (Karma In Action)” will be coming soon. After the play, the doors to the resources will open to help rebuild the family unit: Father, Mother and Child. Sponsors for the program include America Works, Home Depot, First Student Bus Company, and Community Advocates.
