ADAM Caqhllenge FlyerAccording to the Pew Research Center, in a recent report that describes the rapid increase in the number and proportion of single-parent homes headed by fathers, since 1960, there has been an increase from less than 300,000 to more than 2.6 million (as of 2011).  At Community Based Connections, Incorporated, we recognize this increase and have strategically designed a program, A.D.A.M. (Awesome Dads Awesome Men) Fatherhood Mentoring, to support single fathers throughout Broward County.  A.D.A.M. is a program of Community Based Connections, Inc (C.B.C.I.), a 501(c) (3) nonprofit youth development agency that fosters positive decision making, leadership, self-worth, self-respect, and self-confidence in at risk youth.  C.B.C.I. provides prevention, early intervention, and case management services in South Florida aimed at increasing positive parent/child interactions.  A.D.A.M. is unique in its approach as it utilizes the psycho educational parenting group model. The model incorporates the 24/7 Dad’s Curriculum AM and PM for fathers couple with (Effective Black Parenting and The Nurturing Fathers Program). It gives many fathers an opportunity to bond with their children at the father/child group activities that are scheduled.
