ABOUT BLACK FATHERHOOD LEGACY
Black men in Fresno have a strong desire to provide comfort and support for their partners and families. They want to be role models for their children and other men in the community.
BLACK Fatherhood Legacy (BFL) was created by Black fathers for Black fathers to come together and support each other in an authentic and unapologetic way.
