Thank you to Wellspring Associate Board Member Joe Nguyen for reflecting on the recent Father's Day holiday and the role fatherhood plays in his life:
"Up until having two kids of my own, Father's Day has always been a tough time of the year. My father was in a car accident when I was young and I didn't know him very well. Yet his presence has shaped my life in so many ways.
He was a strong community advocate, devoted husband and generally the life of any party. Hearing stories of his work has inspired me to be present for my family but also ingrained within me the value of service.
Now I work to be a positive example for my owns kids and giving to Wellspring is a key part of that message."
Joe and other young professionals on our Associate Board are honoring some of the caring male role models in their lives. They know every child deserves the safe and joyful relationship Joe has with his family. Together the Associate Board is supporting the Wellspring Domestic Violence Intervention Program, which helps other dads learn to have a caring relationship with their children. Join them to be a part of keeping mothers and children safe and helping families heal: https://www.crowdrise.com/the-cycle-of-violence-stops-here/fundraiser/we...
