Father absence and fatherlessness is a worldwide phenomenon and a worldwide tendency in communities. Research conducted in twenty one countries has revealed father absence and fatherlessness as the biggest problem facing society today. The traditional family is fading away, and with it we are losing God's idea in terms of family, and the significant role of the father. In America 85% of children with behavioral problems come from fatherless homes, while 90% of homeless children come from fatherless homes, and over 70% of children who do not finish school come from fatherless homes.
Founded in 2017, E210 Outdoors a 501(c)(3) registered non-profit, started taking at-risk and fatherless youth on outdoor adventure trips. With the purpose of sharing our love for Jesus and the outdoors with youth, our focus each year is to take young men on challenging outdoor adventures in God's most beautiful landscapes. Disconnected from technology, streets, stress and negative influences, campers can connect with God on a more personal level. By sharing testimonies and conducting our scripture based curriculum throughout our trips, we challenge youth to learn and grow spiritually, obtain a greater sense of identity through Jesus and not the streets, gangs, social media or negative influencers in their lives.
