Fathers day is just around the corner. Albany Technical College hosted a fatherhood event to help motivate fathers.

The fatherhood event gives families information on services and resources available in the community to assist with a variety of needs. Guest speakers and vendors were on hand along with Amerigroup and Albany housing authority.

The goal is to get families connected.

Carla Harrell with Albany Technical college says, "I want them to take away the importance of family connecting, the importance of a father being in the household. If he is not in the household to let him know he is still a great part of the family."

Danita Wiggins with the Albany Housing Authority says, "We are also working to educate our students as a whole. This event has been open to both faculty, staff, students and our community."

For more information on referrals Carla Higgins is available Monday through Friday from 8-5 in the Kirkland building.
