The social, emotional and economic costs of diminished lives caused by fatherlessness, unwed pregnancy and divorce are devastating and their costs to government are not sustainable. Children in father-absent homes are two to three times more likely to:

  • Be victims of child and sexual abuses
  • Do drugs
  • Experience educational, health, emotional and behavior problems
  • Become teen parents  
  • Engage in criminal behavior


Do you know?

Children in father-absent homes are twice as likely to end up in jail. Sixty-three percent of youth who commit suicide come from father-absent homes.

Seventy-one percent of high school dropouts come from father-absent homes.

Nearly 75 percent of children raised in homes without fathers will experience poverty before the age of 11, compared to 20 percent of those raised in two-parent homes.
 

This is not a partisan issue!
By working together, we can actually implement solutions that work. Restore California is a project of the The Four Institutions, a registered 501 (c) 3,  and patterned after a successful program in Chattanooga, Tennessee called First Things First.
