Byron Clark - Founder & Board Member
Byron is the founder of No Longer Fatherless. It had been on his heart for years to start an organization that would invest in the lives of fatherless boys. Byron was exposed to the harsh reality of fatherlessness in America by observing and learning from his mother who has been in social work for many years. With adopted siblings and cousins, he has seen the importance of investing in the lives of others, and the incredible impact it has. Byron enjoys horseback-riding, traveling, spending time with family and friends, and reading. He has traveled to South America, lived in France, toured Europe, and spent time in West Africa. Byron attended Wheaton College in Illinois for two years before graduating from Flagler College in Florida - from which he holds a Bachelor’s Degree in International Relations & Government.
Please note that the No Longer Fatherless founders emphasize Christian values & ethics. Although we are not a Christian-affiliated organization, basic Christian principles are the foundation of this organization.
