Eric* visited Birthline just a few hours after he gained custody of his baby girl. Unsure and a little confused, he wondered what services we offered. Together we started at the very beginning, and Eric and one of our advocates figured out what size clothes and diapers his daughter wears. He told us he is just trying to figure out being a father. Although he only expected to receive help with baby supplies, we were also able to offer him an appointment with Lloyd Nichols who started Man to Man through Birthline. Man to Man is a program that supports fathers and fathers-to-be as they navigate their relationships and responsibilities. Many men today have had very few, if any, healthy male role models to pattern their own lifestyles after. Man to Man works with our clients and clients’ partners to offer fatherhood resources and support, Biblical guidance and genuine friendships with other men.
Eric is just beginning the beautiful journey of fatherhood, and we are so please to have a resource available to him right here at Birthline. Do you know any men who have a heart for families and fathers in our community? We would love to talk with them about ways they can get involved with Man to Man at Birthline!
