International Fathers’ Association was created to fill a void, to meet a need that was not being met in our community. Our fathers are not appreciated the way they are supposed to. Due to lots of fathers who are away from the homes, for reasons sometimes that are beyond their control, they leave the responsibilities of raising children to mothers alone. For this, they are not given the honor they deserve.
International Fathers’ Association is created to foster, support and engage in activities relative to socioeconomic development, progress and ideals, including any and all activities which are lawful and appropriate in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida.
