The Fathers and Families Resource/Research Center, Inc. the Fathers and Families Resource/Research Center, Inc. is a non-profit organization located at 2835 North Illinois Street and has, for more than over twenty years, been working to improve the lives of fathers, families and the Indianapolis community.

This event also provides an opportunity to recognize the programs provided by this organization, and the positive impact on the Indianapolis community.  This year’s event will be on June 16, from 11:45 am until 1:30 pm.

Over the last ten years 43 fathers nominated by local business or community groups have been honored. 2016’s recipients were: Circle Up Indy founder and CEO, James Wilson, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Sargent Christopher Wilburn, and Circle Up Indy’s Marketing and IT Director, Chris Smith and Fathers and Families Consultant, Marcus Murray.
