Father’s Day Event – A Celebration of Families 2013 is a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development initiative that aims to strengthen the bond between children and their fathers, who are often absent from the lives of their children who live in public housing. Concurrently, the initiative has the goal of connecting dads to supportive services in their communities including, job training, health screenings and education opportunities. For the past three years HUD has asked Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) across the U.S. to host an event on the Saturday before Father’s Day in June that achieves these goals. This year, the date is Saturday, June 15, but housing authorizes should feel free to be flexible with the date of their events. This is an opportunity to empower families —fathers, children and mothers — while also connecting Dad’s with economic, employment, health and education resources.
