On The Edge Interview with Carey Casey the Founder of Championship Fathering
Carey and I talk about the severe epidemic of Fatherlessness in our nation, the reasons and some of the solutions.
The numbers are staggering: 24 million children live without their biological father in the home.1 24 million children – that's one out of every three children in the U.S.
As huge as that number is, it doesn't tell the whole story about father absence. Due to separation and divorce, many of the children who lived with their fathers when these U.S. Census Bureau numbers came out, no longer do so.
Carey Casey is best known as a compassionate ambassador and speaker, particularly within the American sports community. As the former CEO of the National Center for Fathering (NCF), Casey has earned a reputation as a dynamic communicator, especially on the topic of men being good fathers. He is also author of the book, Championship Fathering: How to Win at Being a Dad and General Editor of the book 21-Day Dad’s Challenge: Three Weeks to a Better Relationship With Your Kids. His most recent book is Championship Grandfathering: How to Build a Winning Legacy.
Carey is also currently a pastor at Lawndale Christian Community Church — an inner-city church on Chicago’s west-side, recognized by the George H. W. Bush Points of Light Foundation. This vibrant church helps empower the community with health care, housing, education and economic growth.
