Brandon’s Story

Posted on August 20, 2020 by in


Brandon is a first time father who found support through the Fatherhood Program.

“I am a first time father and my daughter will be a year old next month. For a few months, I was in the process of trying to figure out my next steps with possibly co-parenting. Through support of Healthy Baby Network, I met JaMone. He supported me as a big brother.

I was looking for parenting classes for men. Healthy Baby Network, at the time, did not offer classes but offered to provide clothes, diapers, a car seat, and other essential baby items. Healthy Network also provided me with outside resources and contacts. I was able to network with other support groups and get detailed information.

JaMone attentively listened to my situation and checked up on me regularly. He was real supportive through everything.  I have now reconciled with my fiancé. We are back together, raising our daughter.

There are not many groups that help men and provide resources. In the future, I would like to see our community come out and support the events that are held by Healthy Baby Network for Fathers. It makes a difference. There are men out there who want to be present, active, and make a difference in their children lives. The events are fun, informative, and much appreciated.”  – Brandon
