Positive Feedback From Daddy Hunger Screening

On April 18, 2008, Ray Upchurch, producer of “Daddy Hunger,” held a special screening of his powerful film in Sacramento. CAFC was extremely honored to be asked to sponsor the screening, and CAFC’s Michael Robinson was asked to do the opening presentation and remarks.

The Daddy Hunger screening has product some very positive results. CAFC had invited an attendee of our February 2008 Domestic Violence Conference to attend the screening. That person is a representative of the California Department of Social Services. The CDSS representative was very impressed with the film and the research materials presented during CAFC’s opening remarks. As a result a copy of the DVD and the presentation materials were passed onto another senior official within CDSS’s children's issues division. You too can view these materials at CAFC’s website.

We are please to announce that CAFC was contacted by that senior official informing us that CDSS wants to use the materials for a pilot fatherhood program. The program will teach responsible fatherhood and develop policies that encourage fathers to take part in their children’s daily lives, not just provide financial support. It is our understanding the program will also encourage mothers to be more supportive of the father’s involvement in the daily lives of their children. Furthermore, it appears that CDSS will support a resolution that CAFC plans to introduce next year to promote the importance of a father’s involvement to the overall well-being of their children.
