Father involvement has been reported to have a positive relationship with children outcomes. The goal of this project is to empower young fathers by providing a safe home. The Malaika project will provide safe housing for young fathers age l8-21. Providing housing stability could potentially increase the parental involvement of the young father. The project was guided by Watson Theory of Caring and Culture of Safety Theory developed by Irihapeti Merenia Ramsden. This paper provides a guide on how these safe homes will be established. The project will discuss challenges that have been identified such as financing, IRS filings, and timing for the project.
