WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Terrance, IT Professional
I strongly believe that Our Fatherless Foundation is a powerful tool to help combat all the challenging conditions that fathers face today. For example, fathers who might want to pursue a professional career could learn some invaluable skills through this foundation.
Andre, Warehouse Manager
I feel that this is definitely needed in many communities. I believe this movement will impact many lives and I’m looking forward to seeing Our Fatherless Foundation do great things. I believe Joe Roberson is the perfect leader and example for this foundation.
Dawiet, IT Director
I feel that is important for every child to know the love of a father. This initiative is necessary for all fatherless children and is a noble undertaking. It is unfortunate that is necessary, but I’m glad Our Fatherless Foundation has stepped up to the plate to address this issue.
