FFHC is excited to present this report, which represents a culmination of two and a half years of work, involving over 80 community table engagements and community forums. In the report, FFHC seeks to uplift and give priority to community voices related to the opportunities and challenges facing Black Men and Boys in the context of their families and neighborhoods. FFHC believes when you improve outcomes for Black men and boys you strengthen Black women and girls, families and the community at large.
Dr. Waldo Johnson was interviewed by FFHC’s CEO, Dr. Kirk E. Harris for FFHC’s Father Engagement and Family Strengthening series. In the interview, Dr. Johnson shared his perspective on the history, status, challenges, and strengths of the Black family.

The men discussed what success for them would entail and how their successes could help JARC in the future. The men also discussed their roles and responsibilities in meeting their goals after successful completion of JARC’s program.
