One of the DFFC initiatives is the DFFC Barbershop/Hair Salon Community Dialogue. This open dialogue creates an ongoing conversation with those in the community to discuss the needs of fathers and mothers parenting children. This is a cross-training opportunity for the community to initiate and increase awareness. There is a need for fathers, mothers, and children to be healthy and safe. We believe a father’s voice and his involvement is needed in his child’s life as well as within the community. The barbershop/ hair salon community dialogues is one of the many venues that DFFC members/ambassadors are using to create a dialogue wherever they find a listening audience.
