Father’s Focused on Families Event

We hosted our first Father’s Day event centered around children of our communities either in affordable or public housing, or housing choice voucher holders. The event was dedicated to celebrating the relationship between a father and his child and the importance of that very special bond. The event took place on Saturday, June 18 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at 11443 Ulmerton Road in Largo, Florida.

There were crafts, games, vendors, food, prizes and lots of fun for Dad to particpate with his children. State Representative Darryl Rouson was the keynote speaker of the event. There were also resources for entrepreneurship, health and wellness education, job training, education information as well as a moon bounce house, face painting and free haircuts!

This event was part of a national initiative prompted by HUD and influenced by a New York City Housing Authority who launched a similar successful event last year.


Thanks to our many sponsors for helping us celebrate fatherhood. Check out the photos below!
