Illinois Fathers, a non-profit organization, is determined to foster improved relationships between the traditional non-custodial parent and their children by creating community support programs designed to maintain a meaningful and substantial relationship between them and to educate the general public about the importance of said relationship.

With over 80% of African American children born out of wedlock today, nowhere else is the need more important for kids today to grow up with both parents in their life while fostering a positive, healthy relationship with their children.

Strong families breed strong communities. Strong communities make strong businesses and corporations. Strong business makes for strong cities which in turn makes strong states and thus a strong country.

The community may help support Illinois Fathers to educate parents, communities and youth to grow to understand that "Children Need Both Parents". Our community depends on it. Our children depend on us. Our culture and history rely on us.
