Incorporating & Supporting Fatherhood ? I suggest (per track record) the concept be: Suspended, Forfeited, & Dissolved; Guess Why!

leave a comment »


I just discovered the National Latino Fatherhood & Family Institute, which had launched a California Fatherhood Initiative.

I’m a Californian (a female) and I’ve had enough of this!

Here’s why — see the Status column, and also note the dates; compare with the agents column.  Do the math:

Entity Number Date Filed Status Entity Name Agent for Service of Process
C2214941 04/07/2000 SUSPENDED SOCIETY FOR THE PROPAGATION OF THE BROTHERHOOD OF MAN AND THE FATHERHOOD OF GOD, INC. FRANCISCO ROCES
C2270051 10/26/2000 SUSPENDED THE DO-RIGHT FATHERHOOD PROGRAM DEREK MORGAN
C1923243 07/13/1995 FORFEITED THE INSTITUTE FOR RESPONSIBLE FATHERHOOD AND FAMILY REVITALIZATION SAM COLLINS
C2334217 02/16/2001 SUSPENDED THE URBAN FATHERHOOD PROJECT KELLY T SMITH
C2677661 10/08/2004 SUSPENDED THE URBAN FATHERHOOD PROJECT JAMES E JENNINGS JR
C3330049 10/29/2010 ACTIVE URBAN FATHERHOOD NETWORK FOUNDATION, INC. JAMES EARL JENNINGS JR

2001 — The Urban Fatherhood Project formed by Kelly T. Smith/  Suspended.  My great state (unlike some others) neglects to tell us when.

2004 — Organization by same name, but different registered agent  / Suspended.   Finally James Earl Jennings, Jr., trying again, has an active (as of one year in duration, soon to be two) group.  See it?

Here’s page 1 of the 2 pages showing “Fatherhood” in the title from California Secretary of State, and on the bottom row is James Earl Jennings name, again propagaint The Urban Fatherhood Project — and it go suspended.  Thus, approximately every two years he is incorporating.

If these are nonprofits, what are the odds that any of them filed properly, or are still collecting somewhere out on the web from innocents who aren’t aware they can look these things up?

Entity Number Date Filed Status Entity Name Agent for Service of Process

C2889297 07/24/2006 SUSPENDED SAN FRANCISCAN’S FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF THE URBAN FATHERHOOD PROJECT, INC. JAMES JENNING JR

I was actually looking for the National Latino Fatherhood and Family Institute (which doesn’t show up here, may be a trade name, but has an area code# associated with California / San Jose area).

The California Fatherhood Initiative:

National Compadres Network :

A search of the word “fatherhood” (only  – and no other word at all) shows an entirely different cast of characters — none of which are current on anything!  And it would appear (given the difference) that the organizations below didn’t register as corporations either, like they should:

 

This is from the Attorney General’s (Registry of Charitable Trusts) Site.

Organization Name Registration Number Record Type Registration Status City State Registration Type Record Type
FATHERHOOD 101 OF ORANGE COUNTY, INC. Charity Not Registered SANTA ANA CA Charity Registration Charity
FATHERHOOD COALITION 106783 Charity Delinquent SANTA BARBARA CA Charity Registration Charity
FATHERHOOD INSTITUTE Charity Not Registered DUBLIN CA Charity Registration Charity
FATHERHOOD PROJECT – NEXT GENERATION (FP-NG) Charity Not Registered WEST SACRAMENTO CA Charity Registration Charity
1

DUBLIN, California (for those not in the area) is a very well to do, small, town in Northern California outside the Bay Area.  It probably has any number of family law professionals still living there, and formerly the well-known Parental Alienation Promoter, Philip Stahl, Ph.D. (AFCC, etc. now in AZ last I heard) used to live here, as I recall — or nearby).

What gets more interesting is some of those “not registered” actually have EIN#s (which makes no sense to me).

The Fatherhood Coalition has been around since (per its articles of Incorporation) 1996 ! ! ! ! (timed to welfare reform, much?) and the list of Board of Directors is extensive and contains an M.Div and a number of what look like public employees at agencies, too.  Here’s the link:

music, and the outdoors

Gordon Dalby is big in the Men’s Movement, “Healing the father wound.

In my ministry, I want men to experience the healing and freedom when you get real with yourself, with God, and with other men. That’s how we discover not only Whose we are, but the manhood we’re created for and the power to walk it out.- Gordon Dalbey
Is the Men’s Movement Dead?” – Read Gordon’s current Newsletter
Healing the Father-Wound” – Gordon Dalbey video Interview
Hippies, Fathers, and Forgiveness” – Read Gordon’s recent Article
Broken by Religion” – Podcast interview

He’s a Focus on the Father Speaker, which is enough for me to say, “Enough!”

Gordon Dalbey was our main speaker at the Tribes 2009 Men’s Retreat

Gordon Dalbey’s Website – AbbaFather.com

In 1988, Gordon Dalbey’s first book Healing the Masculine Soul pioneered the growing Christian men’s movement, by calling men to a godly strength—neither the traditional violent, loner male nor the “counterculture” peace-and-love male. His unique focus has stirred men of all ages, races, and position. His groundbreaking 1991 Focus on the Family radio interviews drew a listener response in the top 10% of the show’s history, and were re-broadcast in 1998, 2003, and 2008 as “classics.”

Gordon’s second book, Sons of the Father, offers healing for the father-wound, which cripples men today as husbands, fathers, workers, an friends.

Fight Like a Man, his third book, shows how the unmet longing for Dad and a father’s manly guidance stirs deep shame in a man, and how Father God transforms us with His truth and grace into warriors for His Kingdom.

No Small Snakes, his most recent book, is the story of how Gordon first met and learned to overcome evil spirits in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Why would he be doing business (given the belief in overcoming evil spirits) with a person who specialized in hypnosis, which for the Christian is not acceptable (i.e., it’s characterized as under the influence of “familiar spirits” or the occult, basically).

This post was just “slapped up here” — but then again, many of the corporations above also seem to have been.  This bears further scrutiny, and at some point in time, we are going to have to start just saying No! to the IRS also, if it continues taking money through wage garnishment and threat of incarceration for noncompliance which then is NOT taken from groups like this, who are completely out of compliance with basic corporations law and common sense.

Readers, Give me a break on any inaccuracies in THIS post — I’ll be back, but I felt it worth showing.

The presence of the Fatherhood movement with major (million-$$) incentives — attracts frivolous filings of religious ramblings supposedly for public benefit.   Women don’t even know about this, half the time! when in a custody battle, or battling to keep their children (as a single mother) from being fostered out, without cause, against their will for sheer issues like poverty.
