Fathers Who Care, the West Garfield Park Community Stakeholders and the West Garfield Park Youth Council celebrated the Season of Giving by working diligently to give gifts to children and make sure that local families in need felt the holiday spirit this season.

The organizations were also present at the Austin Chamber of Commerce’s 11th Annual Holiday Festival & Tree Lighting Celebration. Rev. Walter Jones offered a special prayer for the Christmas season and for a safe and drug free community.

Fathers Who Care is a comprehensive, parental involvement social service initiative that was created to provide a nurturing and educational environment for non-custodial and custodial fathers who are indigent, but interested in building their parental involvement and social skills, while also maintaining a positive and successful relationship with their children. Fathers Who Care is committed to providing alternative to Violence in our communities.

The West Garfield Park Community Stakeholders, a consortium of residents, agencies, churches, elected officials, law enforcement, and businesses working together to improve the quality of life on the West Side community, is actively engaged in efforts to prevent substance abuse by young people and ending youth violence.
