In an extraordinary feat of love, compassion, and determination, Dr. Torri J. Evans-Barton, the Founder & CEO of The Fatherless Generation Foundation Inc. (TFGF), has achieved a historic milestone by reuniting 8,400 fatherless children with 3,281 biological fathers. This remarkable accomplishment underscores the profound impact of fatherlessness on children’s lives and the healing power of reconnection.
Dr. Torri J. Evans-Barton’s journey is deeply personal. She herself grew up without her biological father and only reunited with him when she was 31 years old. This reunion sparked a profound transformation in her life, leading her to recognize the critical role fathers play in shaping their children’s identities. Reflecting on her experience, she stated, “Finding my biological father at 31 years old caused me to discover my identity and realize the significance of a father’s role in our lives. I believe, if possible, all human beings should have the same opportunity I was provided. By reuniting with my biological father, I was positioned to heal from the trauma fatherlessness introduced.”
Her own healing process became the driving force behind her mission to help other fatherless children reconnect with their biological fathers. She founded The Fatherless Generation Foundation with a vision of “Eradicating Fatherlessness Through Reunification.” Dr. Torri J. and her team provide invaluable support to their clients, offering a step-by-step action plan to facilitate successful reunions and address the deep emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual issues that often accompany fatherlessness.
“Fatherlessness is an indoctrination into trauma and dysfunctional behavior that is normalized within certain communities, leaving children wanting a daddy so bad but afraid to reunite with him,” Dr. Torri J. explained. Her foundation strives to normalize reunification and empower individuals to heal and embrace their identities.
The Fatherless Generation Foundation’s commitment to fatherhood extends beyond reunification. Their “Commitment to Fatherhood” program works closely with fathers to re-engage and reintegrate them into their children’s lives, fostering stronger family bonds. The foundation also operates “Beyond Fatherless Peer Groups” in Boys & Girls Clubs and Community Centers in 98 cities within 33 states across the United States. Additionally, TFGF has expanded its vital work into Africa, with operations in Zambia, South Africa, and Nigeria.
Dr. Torri J. Evans-Barton’s tireless dedication has garnered recognition and acclaim for her groundbreaking efforts. She is a Certified Cognitive Behavioral Coach & Practitioner, Fatherless & Reunification Expert, State Certified Family Mediator, and a National Speaker on the positive influence of reunification on fatherless children and their families. She is also an accomplished author with four books to her name, including “Daddy… Where Are You?” and “Why Should I Reunite with My Absent Father?” Her impact extends to the airwaves, where she reunited fathers live on the Rickey Smiley Morning Show for five years.
