When father of four, Howard Hughes, graduated from the Family Formation in 2016, he never thought that one day, FFSC would ask him to join the team.
“Back then, I worked full-time at Division of Youth Services and needed FFSC’s help navigating the legal system to stay current with my child support,” said Howard. “I just wanted to support my family like a good father.”
Facilitator, Reginald Slaughter saw something more in him: “After Howard graduated from Class 112, he kept coming back to volunteer and support staff in his free time,” said Reginald. “He also has a good heart and is very compassionate with the fathers.”
In March 2018, FFSC hired Howard as a full-time career adviser and facilitator. “Every day I come to work, it’s a blessing,” said Howard. “I get to help fathers become better versions of themselves for their children.”
“I get to help fathers become better versions of themselves for their children.”
When asked about his favorite part of the job, Howard said: “When a father calls me to let me know he got the job – that makes my day every time!”
In his free time, Howard loves to read and spend time with his kids, ages 11, 10, 5 and 3. “Also, volunteering in the community is a big part of my life,” he said. “I love giving back.”
