Milwaukee Recreation recently partnered with the Milwaukee Fatherhood Initiative to host the eighth annual Daddy/Daughter Dance in the cafeteria of North Division Community Center, 1011 W. Center St. recently. The evening included dancing, games, food, prizes and a live DJ.
The Daddy/Daughter Dance was a chance for fathers and daughters to dress up and ejoy a great evening together.
It was also a great way for young ladies to strengthen their relationships with their fathers.

Voice of the Fatherless Child organization and Home Depot to team up again to provide community job opportunities!
Because of the success of a partnership earlier this month between “Voice of the Fatherless Child” Center for Intervention Through Entertainment and the Home Depot in which men and women from the community had the opportunity to apply for 70 job openings with the home improvement chain, the two entities plan to host another Job Readiness program in March. The Home Depot plans to take the second program to another level in order to help the community and children with workshops and other events.
