"The Father Daughter Dance focuses on the importance of fathers and their daughters having strong, healthy relationships. The first strong male bond girls have is with their father and this event teaches young girls what it means to be treated with love and respect," said Terry Austin, executive director, Positive Image.
Over 200 fathers and daughters participated.
"Statistics show that a young girl will seek her father's love first at home. If she doesn't find it, she will seek it elsewhere. The objective is that fathers will continue to be positive role models and influencers of their daughters, and that daughters will have healthy relationships as teens and adults as a result," said Austin.
We've asked these fathers to join us in our efforts to promote healthy father-daughter relationships, which will in turn provide young girls with the guidance they need to become productive in our community.
