What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Society ignores and denies that men’s mental & emotional health need attention and resources. The U.S. government cuts down its male-focused budget every year. Meanwhile 80% of all suicide deaths are men. Each day thousands of men become victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, and physical violence. Instead of providing help and resources for them, society shames, ridicules and incarcerates them & attends their funerals. There are far too few resources available for all men in general especially straight men. Male-focused resources to assist them through child custody problems, & divorce headaches are next to none. There are too few shelters available for men & most of the existing ones are substandard and lack amenities, basic hygiene, and are not safe. Many fathers are forced to stay in unhealthy households to protect their children. More often than not, these fathers don’t have the means to remove their children from a toxic household and take them to a safe environment.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Radical Suicide Rate Reduction (RSRR)

Our RSRR program is one that is near and dear to our hearts. 80% of all deaths from suicide are men and this stat never makes the front-page news. The government budget for men's causes is cut down every year. There are not many organizations dedicated to men's causes and providing much-needed resources for men. Our men, fathers, brothers, partners are killing themselves quietly in alarming numbers every day. When a man reaches the point of no hope and takes his own life, a family is destroyed, and the trauma and the dark cloud of suicide are passed down to the next generation. RSRR provides crucial resources such as education, counseling, and legal help for men going through a rough patch, all free of charge. Our ultimate goal is to reduce pain and violence; whether it's towards the self (suicide) or others.
