Now here's a great grassroots effort on the part of dads! How wonderful would it be to see natural family living fathers start something like this and seed it throughout the country.


A small group of men in Nipomo is determined to make a difference in their families and their community. They recently completed a formal parenting program and plan to stick together to support what they’ve learned...

According to a recent report in The Wall Street Journal, Abriendo Puertas has reached about 25,000 families in 31 states since it began in 2008.

“I’m not usually involved in meetings, but I like these,” Nipomo group member Jabier Andrade said. “The more fathers come to these meetings, the more the kids benefit. They are the future.”

Aldo Preciado agreed: “We work long hours, but we come here afterwards.”
