As a founder and president of Oregon-based Concerned Fathers Against Crime, Bob organized hundreds of volunteers to support law enforcement with eyes-and-ears patrols, using unmarked cars and cell phones to report crime. Called “community policing at its finest” by the local police chief, Concerned Fathers later became part of what Bob calls a “family in community” movement with the addition of Concerned Mothers (2004) and Concerned Youth (2006). Concerned Families, a non-profit 501c3 group, has received both local and national recognition, including letters from Congress all the way to the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives.
