San Antonio Fatherhood Campaign-In San Antonio, an idea that began with the vision of a handful of concerned Latino/Chicano and Native-American fathers quickly developed into an organized community campaign to promote responsible fatherhood to fathers of all ages. The campaign, which began in February 2004, received substantial assistance from Making Connections-San Antonio and the Annie E. Casey Foundation Fatherhood initiative. The San Antonio Fatherhood Campaign is a community initiative designed to promote responsible fatherhood by helping males and father’s of all ages to achieve greater self esteem and better awareness of their responsibilities to their families and community. Through this initiative, fathers are encouraged to become actively involved in the health and wellness of their own lives as well as in the lives of their children. The campaign wants to emphasize the honor of being a father and about the important role a male parent, regardless of his age, plays in the life of his child. www.safatherhood.com
