New February Fatherhood Participant and His Son Were Having a Great Time at The Dad’s Den!

What MFC Taught Me As I Became A Father —

Staff Member Larry Felder

Larry Felder has been employed with MFC for almost 8 years. He is currently the Building Better Bridges Coordinator for Richland and Lexington county. The Better Bridges program was designed specifically to address the issues that most of our at-risk youth face. Felder said, “undoubtedly, the most rewarding part of my job is being afforded the opportunity to work with some ‘troubled’, yet amazing young men. Often times the youth that I encounter have common traits and one of those common traits is fatherlessness. Being able to stand in that gap and become not only a resource but a role model to these young men is a wonderful feeling.” He recently became a father in November to a baby boy named Amir Javon Felder. Felder said, “Amir’s eyes are full of life and his belly stays full of milk!” Felder credits MFC’s weekly peer group sessions for the knowledge he had going into fatherhood. He says, “MFC has equipped me with tools that will be with me forever, as the journey of being a father is one that is forever lasting.” Amir is finally sleeping through the night and has surprised his parents with how many diapers he has managed to go through in two and half months! Felder can’t to continue to use his skills from MFC as he raises Amir.
