•Sarah and Carol share the importance to children of play in learning and connecting with loved ones
•Carol explains how welfare historically has worked against families, isolating men from families and discussion about the many layers of ramifications that has for each member of a family – what gets internalized and passed down across generations that came from a broken societal system
•Carol explains the hand up FFSC provides men and families instead of handouts and how programs are facilitated by male graduates who can say they’ve been there and come through
