Grant to fund training men as better fathers

NASHVILLE (AP) — Nashville health officials will use a nearly $5 million federal grant to teach men how to be better fathers.
The program is expected to last three years and reap social and economic benefits for families.
The $4.8 million grant will fund programs in North and East Nashville in neighborhoods with the highest proportion of single-parent homes in the city, according to The Tennessean.
Among issues the program will address are job training, anger management, relationship building and finishing school.
Counseling director David Thomas of Daystar Counseling said a lot of men had fathers who weren’t involved in day-to-day parenting, giving them a poor road map to follow in being a father.
