working on non-profit status

We have been mostly quiet here at Why Not Fathers.  Rest assured things have been busy.

Currently we are working on incorporating Why Not Fathers as a non-profit.  We are hoping that this will open up opportunities for speaking and further engagement.

Potential speaking engagements include the following topics:
adoption – both as a parent and as a child
reactive attachment disorder
autoimmune disorders – Lupus.
stay at home dad
using social media to connect with others who are experiencing similar events
disability and you
taking care of your own mental health
working with the school to achieve a middle ground

Medicaid, still no resolution

Well, it has been a week since we learned that David’s Medicaid would be closed and that we would have to reapply in the state where the PRTF level facility he resides is located.   Still no resolution.  But we have a variety of people from the state working on it, and I am creating a… Continue Reading
