Calling all fathers
& Aspiring fathers 

Psalm 127:3-5 – Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.

Fatherhood is the highest calling a man can receive but about  24.7 million children (33%) in the United States lived in fatherless homes. Divorce and separation are two of the most common factors that contribute to fatherless homes.  

The like­li­hood of a child liv­ing in a sin­gle-par­ent fam­i­ly varies by race, eth­nic­i­ty and fam­i­ly nativ­i­ty.

Data from 2021 indi­cates that:

  • Black and Amer­i­can Indi­an or Alas­ka Native kids are most like­ly to live in a sin­gle-par­ent fam­i­lies (64% of Black chil­dren and 49% of Amer­i­can Indi­an or Alas­ka Native chil­dren fit this demographic).

  • White and Asian and Pacif­ic Islander kids are least like­ly to live in a sin­gle-par­ent house­hold (24% of white chil­dren and 16% of Asian and Pacif­ic Islander chil­dren fit this demographic). 

  • Lati­no chil­dren and mul­tira­cial kids fall some­where in the mid­dle — with 42% and 38% of kids from these groups, respec­tive­ly, liv­ing in a sin­gle-par­ent family.

  • Fam­i­ly nativ­i­ty makes a dif­fer­ence: 37% of kids in U.S.-born fam­i­lies live in a sin­gle-par­ent house­hold com­pared to just 24% of kids in immi­grant families.
