NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - The Domestic Violence Shelter and Services held their 6th Annual Fathers for Hope Breakfast Wednesday morning in honor of Father's Day.

The breakfast is a way for men in the community to encourage other men to be leaders and positive role models.

WECT's Jon Evans was the master of ceremonies of the event held in Madeline Suite at UNCW.  District Attorney Ben David addressed the men explaining how domestic violence cases impact the lives of the women and families in our community.

The Fathers for Hope work within the community to help combat domestic violence.
