Milwaukee area men will be able to access resources and screenings designed to help them become healthier and more effective fathers at the 7th Annual Milwaukee Fatherhood Summit.
The Fatherhood Summit will be held Friday and Saturday, October 12th and 13th at Destiny Youth Plaza at 7210 N. 76th Street. The free event is being organized by the Milwaukee Fatherhood Initiative in partnership with the Social Development Commission. The goal is to create healthier fathers which will in turn create healthier families and healthier communities.
The theme of the two day summit is Men’s Health. Resources and information will be provided on not only physical health but also mental, spiritual, relationship and financial health as well. Workshops will be held on topics that include Nutrition and Health, Healthy Relationships, Spiritual Solutions for Stress, Family Law, Surviving Today’s Difficult Job Market, and Boot Camp for New Dads.
The Fatherhood Summit will also include a Job and Resource Fair that will have employers who are currently looking for new employees. Residents seeking to apply for a job are encouraged to bring copies of their updated resume with them and to dress appropriately. Also present at the summit will be Milwaukee County Child Support case managers and staff from Driver’s License Recovery.
