NAHMA HUD Update: Host an Event as Part of HUD's National Father's Day 2017

May 31, 2017


Below, please find information regarding HUD’s National Father’s Day initiative encouraging deeper connections between fathers and children in HUD-assisted housing.


Dear Multifamily Partners:

For the last seven years, HUD's National Father's Day initiative has encouraged deeper connections between fathers and children by providing services to families in HUD assisted housing to support their efforts to raise happy, healthy children.  Hundreds of Multifamily properties have participated in this annual event, and I encourage your property to host a Father’s Day event this June.  Together, we can help improve the quality of life for the families we serve.

Building Healthy Families

This year's Father’s Day theme is Building Healthy Families to raise awareness of the important role fathers play in their children’s physical and emotional health. Father's Day events and activities can provide resources in the areas of health, education, and financial empowerment to foster strong relationships between families.


Host a Father’s Day event!

Multifamily properties can host events anytime in the month of June, with activities ranging from a casual cookout to a fair with information about job training opportunities and healthy living. You can partner with local service organizations and health departments to:

  • Plan, publicize and host events
  • Set up resource tables and share information with attendees
  • Donate resources to support events
  • Offer educational programs
