In 1998, Reginald Cox began working with fathers at The Family Resource Centers of Rochester. He has been working with fathers for over fifthteen years and as a result, he has gained vast knowledge in determining and providing resources for their needs. In 2004, Reginald was able to pursue a pastoral position with The Salvation Army. His experience as a pastor allowed him to hear several stories of painful relationships of fathers not mended from the past between fathers and their biological parents and the pattern of these fathers fearing the same fate for their own children. It helped build greater compassion to help fathers through the church and quality programs addressing these issues and concerns. He found a lot of stigmas that caused the fathers to have negative views in society and he wanted to change view – this while at the same time empower fathers to be involved in the lives of their children more effectively. The Fatherhood Connection has a particular interest in working with fathers AND mothers recovering from addictions, hurts, and other tragedies.
