Parents Day stems from HUD’s (U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development) Father’s Day Initiative that aims to strengthen the bond between children and their fathers, who are often absent from the lives of their children who live in public and multi-family housing.
Concurrently, the initiative has the goal of connecting dads to supportive services in their communities including, job training, health screenings and education opportunities. For the past four years HUD has asked Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) across the U.S. to host an event on the Saturday before Father’s Day in June that achieves these goals.
TCOG’s Section 8 HCV and Public Housing programs have decided to include mothers and grandparents in this initiative to show appreciation to all caregivers for being great role models; and hence we have named the event, Parents Day.
