Fatherhood Jubilee to honor exceptional Alamo City fathers

The 100 Black Men of San Antonio, Inc. will host their inaugural awards ceremony Fatherhood Jubilee on Tuesday, June 16 at St. Phillips College Bowden Alumni Center. A select group of honorees from San Antonio and the surrounding area will be recognized for their dedication, leadership and resilience during fatherhood. The highly anticipated event is sponsored by Methodist Healthcare Ministries of South Texas, Inc. (MHM). The Fatherhood Jubilee seeks to strengthen fatherhood in the community at large, especially African American fathers.

"A loving and capable father is very important during early childhood. Support from a strong father figure can positively impact a child's life. We are happy to see fathers in MHM's Parenting Programs learn new skills and then share them within their family unit," shared Shannon Pointon, Parenting Programs manager at MHM. 100 Black Men of San Antonio, Inc. and MHM share the same commitment to supporting fathers so they have the skills and resources needed to lead healthy families. We believe strong fathers improve the quality of life in our communities and it begins with educational and economic opportunities for all men.

The 100 Black Men of San Antonio, Inc. is a chapter of the 100 Black Men of America. For more information about the Fatherhood Jubilee, visit MHM's event calendar.
