The Hero Project

The Hero ProjectKhaaliq Thomas is a professional photographer and custodial dad of 3 (recently divorced). For the past year he has been working on a photo documentary concentrating on single / custodial fathers households.

We would like to spread the word and support his project so please like this page and share this story from our Facebook page.

Purpose of The Project
The project will challenge the belief of fathers being incapable, unwilling, and or inadequate in performing responsibly, productively and lovingly as a single / custodial parent. I currently have 3 participants and need another 3 to 4 for a truly diverse look into these unconventional family structures. Attention will be given to the dedicated ability of these dads and their commitment to raising productive children and supplying a stable home on their own. The finished project will consist of a 110 page full color photo book. He is using Kickstarter to raise the funds to search for more dads through advertising, print and design of the book and setting up exhibitions of the final project.

    I am a single (3/4 custody) father raising two boys. My oldest son is a cancer survivor at the age of 9. I firmly believe that fathers can be nurturing parents as well a good male role models. I love being a father and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
    Consider me a supporter and I look forward to seeing this book soon!!!
