It’s hard enough for divorced fathers to maintain meaningful bonds with their children under the best of circumstances. For dads who find themselves in a dire financial situation and without a place to live, the situation is drastically more grim.
Those homeless fathers is who the Firehouse Shelter in Birmingham, Ala., is hoping to help out. The shelter recently received a donated house that it is renovating to turn into a place where homeless single dads with visitation rights to their children can go to exercise their parenting time.
Shelter House executive director Anne Wright joined DadsDivorce Live to discuss the shelter’s progress and ways you can help out with the project.
