For many Americans, Father’s Day is a day to celebrate. For many others, it’s a day to get through. Because Father’s Day hurts if you don’t have a father.

The facts are clear: Fatherlessness drives many bad outcomes in America, from teen-pregnancy to incarceration. An astounding 85% of youths in prison come from fatherless homes – 20X the national average.

But there’s a path forward from the grim statistics. The Streets Were My Father chronicles the journey of three inner-city Chicago men from fatherlessness to gangs, and from life in prison to prison ministry programs that set them on the road to redemption. And lives as productive members of society.

The Streets Were My Father is an important and inspirational film for anyone who has a father. Or anyone who doesn’t. And for anyone who believes in the power of God to transform lives.
