Fatherhood Focus - Clarence Gibson, Midlands Fatherhood Coalition
What was your life like before coming to MFC? -
My life was out of control, and my wife and I were upset about everything. Depression was taking over, and we had just lost hope!
How did you hear about the program?
A DSS caseworker referred me to Midlands Fatherhood Coalition.
Let’s talk about your experience in the program.
My specialist was Mr. Chris, and we had a wonderful relationship. Mr. Chris was very honest and kept it 100 with us. He supported my wife and I the entire time, and even to this day he supports us! I really enjoyed the program -- the classes provided great information, Mr. Chris kept in touch with DSS weekly, providing progress reports, and he also prepared a progress report for the court.
How did your life change through your participation in the program?
My wife and I were able to get jobs, we found a new place to live, and we were able to gain full custody of all our children.
Words of advice to fathers considering the program?
I would inform the dads to stick with the program, it works!
