Storytelling Event for National Poetry Month

Delaware Fatherhood and Family Coalition - Thursday, April 29, 2021

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!

March DAD ness!!!!

Delaware Fatherhood and Family Coalition - Tuesday, March 16, 2021

Sussex County March DADness!!!!

Excitement, emotional roller coasters, surprises, disappointments, upsets, success, and unforgettable moments. Those words are a short summary of the NCAA College Basketball National Tournament, also known as March Madness. Those exact same words can also be used to describe fatherhood.

Much like March Madness, the things experienced in fatherhood represent some of the highest highs and lowest lows that fathers have or will experience in their lives. Similarly, we will not forget many fatherhood experiences.

On February 20th, 2021, the DFFC partnered with the Children's Beach House in hosting a March DADness, fatherhood initiative, where fathers and families had the opportunity to enjoy lunch, father interviews, and a family photo session.
