Mentoring Program and Applications

In the United States today, approximately 70% of African-American homes do not have a father who is active in the lives of their children. Statistically, this means young males are ‘at-risk’ at a disproportionate rate for behavioral problems, chronic absenteeism and dropping out of school, substance abuse, criminal activity, teen suicide, frequent incarceration in prison and early death.

FAMILY FOUNDATION FUND’S 25TH YEAR

The Family Foundation Fund was established in 1992 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit ministry to serve the Metro Nashville and Middle Tennessee areas by providing a intensive, multi-year, mentoring program in which mature, well-balanced Christian men act as surrogate fathers and establish long-term relationships with disadvantaged boys, ages ten years old and older, who are from homes with absent fathers, and assist them in becoming successful, Christ-center fathers who will impact the destiny of future generations.


Mentoring Program ~ Current Participants

Mentoring Program ~ Current ParticipantsUpon acceptance into the mentoring program, the Foundation sons’ mothers attend an orientation weekend sponsored by the Family Foundation Fund which is generally the first weekend in April. After that, the FFF sons attend a two week Son Camp at the beginning of the summer. After the camp, them may apply for our Summer Mentoring Program where they spend two days with Christian men who allow them to shadow them in their places of work.

On our Son Farm, the FFF sons also learn the value of organically grown produce through their participation. This experience benefits them and their families, helping them to “Eat Healthy and Stay Balanced".


Mentoring Program ~ Past Participants

Mentoring Program ~ Past ParticipantsOver the past 25 years, 70 Foundation sons have been mentored and the results speak for the success of the program. 94% of the Foundation sons who have graduated the mentoring program have no criminal record and many have gone on to college, joined the U.S. Armed Forces, became employed and are responsible citizens. The Family Foundation Fund sons successfully prove that they can break the cycle of fathers abandoning their children and the difficulties that this causes. These mentoring program graduates love the Lord, cherish their wives and children and know the value of hard work and responsibility.
