Sponsor Northeast Ohio’s Largest Father Daughter Dance!
While conducting an Alive On Purpose support group, we asked a group of teen girls a very important question. “What caused you to consider suicide?” The answers were not what we would have expected, but were the thoughts of girls who felt rejected, isolated and separated from their fathers. Immediately our team began to think of ways to proactively eliminate this feeling from those impacted by our organization in the future. The Him & Me concept was created to bring fathers and daughters together and strengthen their relationship by reducing negative effects on girls within our community.
An estimate of 28% of young women live absent of their biological father in Cuyahoga County according to the US Census Bureau. “The Him & Me program aims to show the importance of a father’s impact on their daughter’s self-esteem thus increasing their overall success and stability within society.” Our efforts provide the necessary avenues for fathers to foster their relationships with their daughters.
Additionally, the Him & Me agenda provides a forum for conversation and interaction. Him & Me is designed to cultivate the relationship between fathers and daughter by teaching the father and the daughter communication methods, emotional health, safety and parental involvement. Our focus is geared to encouraging personal affirmation and conflict resolution between fathers and daughters. By reinforcing the need for communication between fathers and daughters, fathers become models for the community having long-term impact on young women and reducing associated statistics.
