Fathers, particularly of young children living in west Louisville neighborhoods, are invited to attend a free dinner and workshop, 502 Fathers Make a Difference, to learn what they can do to promote resiliency in their children.

Rashaad Abdur-Rahman, director of Louisville’s Office for Safe and Healthy Neighborhoods, will share tips on promoting healthy family relationships and discuss ways that fathers can help their children overcome adverse experiences, including difficult co-parenting relationships.

The event will be at the Catholic Enrichment Center, 3146 W. Broadway, at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 16, and includes a free dinner, door prizes and informational booths on employment opportunities, child support and resources for ex-offenders.

Reservations are requested by Feb. 13.  Call 502-574-6661.

The event is sponsored by the Healthy Start program of the Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness, and by the Office of Multicultural Ministry of the Archdiocese of Louisville.  Healthy Start’s 502 Fathers initiative strives to give fathers the tools and resources they need to be involved in the lives of their children and their families.
