Father's Support Centers - A resource guide

Just saw this on the news this morning. Kudos to Ms. Hoskins. This news piece is about a charity that is supporting and targeting fathers that probably don't have internet access and so this fine forum is most likely unavailable to them.

If you have means or resources or volunteer, find an organization like this one in your community and support them as a charity of choice. You get to decide where your charitable donations go and where you volunteer your time (and your kids' time).

Let us know about them in your comments! Please include a link and include the city/community they serve.
