FAB currently has no state of government funding but we are determined to not let that stop us from providing necessary and innovative programming in our communities. Over the past 2 and a half years we have implemented: The FAB House, The Fabulous Unique Resale Shop, FAB Community Beautification, Community Meetings, FAB Revitalization and Modernization Initiative, Youth Empowerment Synergy Mentoring Training Program, Youth Male Mentoring, and more! All of these programs are solely for the communities we serve. These some of these communities do not have the means or the funds to offer these programs in the way that we have. Most are completely free for participants in efforts to afford people in blighted communities a chance at advancement. What We Do is strictly for the people!
Our fundraiser will help raise funds and awareness that will support all of the endeavors we undertake. By donating you further advance and sustain the livelihood of disabled veterans, youth & young men who need direction, a place for job training and a second chance for non-violent offenders. Further your contribution will assist us in bringing innovative eco-green construction/building technology to low-income areas. Your contribution supports an organization whose MAIN goal is to unabashedly pour back into the community.
FATHERS AND BLESSINGS (FAB) NFP hosts its Annual Fundraiser! Raising funds to complete the build out of a newly purchased property which will serve as a resource center providing:
- Job training

The FAB Center for Academic Resources for Empowerment and Success (C.A.R.E.S.) will serve as a safe haven and training ground for members of the community.
This property will also be a template for our FAB Revitalization and Modernization Initiative. FAB has partnered with South Suburban Community College’s Building and Construction department to make the property a Go-Green, Eco Friendly property. This will be the first of its kind in the area and will utilize revolutionary construction/rehab techniques that will not only make this property virtually self-sufficient, but will a spring board for FAB to renovate other homes in the area to become eco-friendly.
With your help, we can revolutionize homes and cut housing costs for those residents who can benefit from it the most!
