In this week’s segment of GRTV’s NPO Showcase, Matt Haviland, founder of A Father's Walk, shares the mission and goals for the organization. Haviland provides free resources including books, podcasts, and articles to assist single fathers in parenting and relationship building.

A Father's Walk is involved with seminars and helps organize events hoping to enrich the lives of single fathers and their families. Upcoming events include a Single Parents Christmas Party (for moms and dads) on Dec. 15, and the Midwest Single Parenting Summit on April 27-28, 2018.

Haviland also offers small groups for single fathers, where fathers can share their stories and network with other families, and helps community organizations develop their own single father's programs.

NPO Showcase is just one of the many ways that the Community Media Center serves the nonprofit community. For information about this and other CMC services for nonprofits, or to schedule a future interview, contact Nonprofit Outreach Coordinator, Adrian Hirsch, at 616-459-4788 x105 or email Adrian Hirsch.
