April is National Poetry Month
April is National Poetry Month celebrating the expressiveness and pure delight of bringing words to life through poetry. In partnership with United Way of Delaware, Girl’s Inc., The Promoting Safe and Stable Families Program, and First State Community Action Agency will feature a one-of-a-kind interactive Storytelling opportunity Griot Mama Chomia. Mama Chomia gave an exceptional performance for the students attending Girl’s Inc. Learning Pod on Wednesday, April 21st @ 1:30 pm.
Our goal is to feature Griot Mama Chomia to encourage children to read and write, which research has shown us is critically important to prepare our children for academic excellence. Children who do not read proficiently by third grade are four times more likely to drop out of high school than those who read proficiently. Showing our students, by your example, the joy of reading will help motivate them to celebrate the power of words and create a community of readers. We hope you know how much our community appreciates you!

fatherhood & family EXPO
AUGUST 29, 2020
The 2020 virtual Fatherhood and Family EXPO will be the first of its kind. We seeking to bring awareness to the entire community by providing information on
family services and how to access those services as a result of COVID-19. The 2020 virtual Fatherhood and Family EXPO,
will provide an opportunity information on changes in service delivery for both formal and informal community organizations.
Participants will be educated on how to access these current services that support physical and emotional health of the family,
with the intent to emphasize the importance of overall physical and emotional wellness.
This EXPO will highlight overall community service availability, i.e., educational services, family mental and emotional wellness,
family support and preservation services as well as co-parenting supports and family engagement opportunities.
This event seeks to inspire participants to become creative in managing their family's overall well-being through, what is not,
the U.S.A. new normal in all communities.
The Delaware Fatherhood & Family Coalition is an extension of the Promoting Safe and Stable Families Program and the Responsible Fatherhood Initiative created specifically to give a voice to fathers and the importance of their involvement for the well-being of their children.
