NYC Mayor Bloomberg Wants More Functional Fathers

Last week New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced a new program for existing father and fathers-to-be to become more involved in their children’s lives by creating programs and classes that are accessible to fathers of all walks of life in the City.

He also announced that he would be creating a new role for city-wide fatherhood services coordinator, who will be in charge of ensuring that all city services leverage their existing networks and infrastructure to support this goal.

The eventual goal is to create more fathers who are active participants in the lives of their sons and daughters.  In other words, create more functional fathers – Dads who give a damn.
