ILLINOIS FATHERHOOD INITIATIVE FOUNDER DAVID HIRSCH LAUNCHES BOLD INITIATIVE – “IT TAKES TWO: THE FATHER FACTOR”
CHIGAGO, ILLINOIS (USA) -- 16 JULY 2013 – In 1997, David Hirsch established the first statewide not-for-profit Fatherhood organization in the United States – the Illinois Fatherhood Initiative (www.4fathers.org) – as a means of addressing the increasing problem of Father absence. He is also the founder of TEAMDAD LLC (http://teamdad.com) which is primarily designed to create a positive social impact by connecting Fathers and children through the promotion of responsible fathering. In 2013, Mr. Hirsch has embarked on an ambitious mission to provide 2,500 Fathers of children who attend public schools with Fatherhood resources that have a successful track record by launching a bold initiative – “It Takes Two: The Father Factor” (http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/it-takes-two-the-father-factor).
"Our goal is to reverse the cultural trend toward fatherlessness by inspiring all dads to become great dads. At TEAMDAD we believe every child needs a dad they can count on. The research is clear: children thrive when they have an involved father—someone who is present financially, physically, emotionally and spiritually. We inspire and equip men to be more involved fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers and father figures. Through the ‘It Takes Two: The Father Factor’ initiative, we are reaching Men at the ‘grassroots level’ who are Fathers or Father Figures and do not have access to resources which address their unique parenting needs,” Hirsch explained.
