The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is calling upon public housing authorities (PHAs) nationwide to organize events in celebration of this coming Fathers’ Day.
This initiative is modeled on one hosted last year by the New York Housing Authority.  The City of Tyler Neighborhood Services Housing Department is calling its program  the “2011 Breakfast With Dad” event, during which fathers and their children will honor fatherhood and the family.
This get-together will also serve to inform fathers about area programs, services and resources intended to hone their parenting skills and make a greater positive impact on their children’s futures.  Free family photographs will also be taken.
For further information, please call Candace Porter or John Thompson at (903) 531-1303 or you can visit the Neighborhood Services office at 900 West Gentry Parkway (75702) in Tyler.
