Fathers are often absent or busy with particular events within the family. And an organization called Fathers Uplift is trying to change the perspective that dads intentionally do that. Their main objective is to provide assistance and counselling to fathers and their families. Additionally, this organization’s podcast AFAR – Absent for a Reason shares stories of dads overcoming issues. Most of the time, fathers give support and stay firm within issues, and the podcast paves the way for dads to finally receive the support they need. From the title itself, stories are often inspiring and heartbreaking.
