Bishop Grant Young from Man to Man Enterprise Inc. was the speaker at the Rotary Club of Ann Arbor North Luncheon on September 13, 2018.
Bishop Grant described, "that Man to Man Enterprise Inc. is a community based non-profit organization that promotes healing, education and empowerment to men marriages, healthy images for son's and daughter's and serves as a support to healthy relationships with our fellow man"
With so many issues in the world, economic pressures, poverty, single parent homes, violence sicknesses and the core of these is a huge lack of men! 
According to statistics because of a lack of education, no family structure, fatherless children, the result of these are overcrowding in our judicial systems and many other physiological pressures that plague our society.
A look at alarming statistics would cause anyone to awake to seeking answers that would help provide healing to fallen and most valuable asset to society is Man!
There is no question that children who grow up in a fatherless homes have a much greater risk of major challenges in life than those who grow up with a father in the home.
Consider just a few questions:
  1. Incarceration Rates: Young man who grow up in homes without a father are twice as likely to end up in jail as those who come from traditional two parent families
  2. Suicide: 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes. (Source: What Can The Federal Government Do To Decrease Crime and Revitalize Communities? from the National Institute of Justice, 1998, Pg 11).
  3. Behavioral Disorders: 85% of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes.
  4. High School Dropouts: 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes.
  5. Juvenile Detention Rates: 70% of juveniles in state-operated institutions come from fatherless homes.
  6. Confused identities: Boys who grow up in father-absent homes are more likely than those in father-present homes to have trouble establishing appropriate sex roles and gender identity.
  7. Criminal Activity: The likelihood that a young male will engage in criminal activity doubles if he is raised with out a father and triples if he lives in a neighborhood with a high concentration of single parent families. (Source: A. Ann Hill, June O'Neill, Underclass Behaviors in the United States, CUNY, Baruch College, 1993)
After looking at such staggering statistics we must have a working plan for men to revive, rehabilitate and ultimately create responsible males in our society if we are to have hope for the next generation of upcoming male fathers, husbands and mentors.
