We’re so happy you’re part of the Young Families community. We exist because people like you make it possible for young parents to feel connected, welcomed, valued and supported.
In celebration of Father’s Day being around the corner, I’d like to share the story of a young father’s heart for his family. Meet Adonai, a young dad navigating the journey fatherhood. Recently when he was asked about his journey, and he shared beautifully about a father’s heart for his children.

“I want to raise my kids up to be good and responsible people and that means I will live to be an example for them," he said. "I want them to know that dad is a good person with a good heart and that I have been there for them."

Young fathers like Adonai are under almost constant pressure to measure up, and many young dads feel that they're not good enough. Young Families is there to encourage young fathers to not just provide financially for their kids but to be present in their lives. Adonai is one of these young fathers committed to raising his children with his partner Gloria. 

This Father’s Day, we’re thankful for dad’s like Adonai who make sacrifices to commit to their families, so their children grow up knowing they’re loved, protected and valued. 

Thank you for all you do to support the Young Families community. Through volunteering, donations, and spiritual support, you are helping young dads become the role models their kids need to build strong, healthy futures for their families all year long.
