HOUSTON, April 29, 2020 /Christian Newswire/ -- The College of Biblical Studies announces the Emerging Leaders Program, a new scholarship program designed to address the father absence epidemic in Houston. Recently, a long-time donor of the College provided funding to fully scholarship young men 17 – 29 who have grown up without a positive father figure in the home.

The Emerging Leaders program has been established to support, counsel, mentor and provide a fully paid, accredited degree to young men who meet eligibility requirements. Research and data show how father absence negatively affects children socially, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Father absence is a key factor in a life of poverty, familial abuse, neglect and incarceration.

"Father absence is a worldwide epidemic changing the framework of society in a devastating way," said CBS President Dr. Bill Blocker. "This crisis first affects the family and then the community. It is such a serious crisis affecting all areas of society that we feel it is critical to address it head-on."

More information about Emerging Leaders and eligibility requirements can be found at CBSHouston.edu/emerging-leaders.
