Summit to help Fathers takes Place on Good Hope

Helping men in Milwaukee become better fathers.  That's the goal of an event today marking the 10th anniversary of Mayor Tom Barrett's 'Fatherhood Summit."

The event took place at Destiny Youth Plaza near 76th and Good Hope.

Over the last 10 years, the summit has served 10,000 fathers, many of them, men of color.

"Black men, latino men, we have to begin the warrior spirit and take back our community," said Alfonso Watkins, a Mental Health Provider.  

That was the message from Alfonso Watkins, a mental health professional as the summit kicked off this morning.

The mayor and county executive were also there.

Together they emphasized strong fathers mean strong families and strong communities.

The fair provides local fathers resources in education, employment, child support, and men's health.

All resources that help fathers maintain an active role in their children's lives.
