Ignacio Angel has decided to define for himself what success looks like as a college student and father of four. The for-profit trade school he went to, which was later investigated for preying on vulnerable students, never delivered on promises of a job, and landed him in debt. With Lilly’s help, he found a support system designed for fathers who want to pursue higher education called the Alameda County Fathers Corps.
The Alameda County Fathers Corps (ACFC) promotes and supports fathers and father-figures to be meaningfully engaged with their children and families, and advocates for family service providers to provide father-friendly services to assist fathers in strengthening their parenting skills.
