Safe Haven hosts fatherhood seminar

GREAT BAY – Safe Haven is collaborating with I-Novus Innovative Solutions to present “Fatherhood: Eradicating Domestic Violence”, which will be taking place at Harbour Village, on Wednesday, August 23 at 6 p.m. With its theme “The Need to Father with Purpose and Love”, the seminar aims to bring awareness to a perspective hardly spoken of – the unhealthy identity of macho, uncompassionate, and unloving men and the effect of such identity on children. No access fees wil be asked for any of the events and will be open for the community.
“Safe Haven foundation is extremely elated to collaborate with I-Novus to organize a much-needed seminar for our community at large” says Cassandra Richardson, Director of Safe Haven, “As Domestic Violence, is known to have a devastating effect on many families and to have a very adverse effect predominantly on the woman, many times the man/perpetrator is neglected.
The man is more often condemned, however, proper assistance and rehabilitation are often times overlooked and he then repeats the execution of his ills. The seminar will focus on assisting and providing men with much-needed guidance, moreover fathers, and will highlight the importance of fatherhood and the fathering of young boys. We implore our community at large especially our men to come out and learn new techniques which may assist you in combating your hardships but will also help with the grooming of your sons and in turn foster better boys who will be better men.”
“If everyone would ensure to do as much as they can to improve their direct circle of trust and influence, a ripple effect will start and before you know it the world you live in will become a better place for us all,” Mr. Ortega who is the director of I-Novus Innovative Solutions stated, “Being a father, your main goal is to raise your children in responsible safe manner and to safeguard them from all dangers. Ensure that you show your values and morals that contribute to a good society.”
