Thank You for a Successful 2017 POWER Gala!

Events

The 2017 POWER Gala was a huge success! It was a great night to join together and celebrate the fathers in our community. The fathers we work with face numerous challenges on a daily basis and it was important to put some time aside to acknowledge their work to improve their lives and the lives of their families. We were especially proud of Javon Taylor, the recipient of the Douglas Lomax Legacy Award. Dr. Michael Yogman, our keynote speaker and Fatherhood Pioneer Award recipient, delivered a power message that will definitely stick with us. None of it would have been possible without our generous donors. We hope you had an amazing night and hope to see you again next year!

THIS DAD CARES Campaign

The transformation that takes men back into the lives of their children often requires a change in the toxic narrratives around them. Fathers’ Uplift believes in confronting these narratives head on. That’s what led to the birth of our first T-Shirt Campaign, “THIS DAD CARES.” Today’s society is often telling us that men do not care: about family, or emotions, or about many of the things that truly matter. That's why it is a powerful statement that as men, and particularly as fathers, we do care, and that we are proud of it. 


About Charles

Charles is tirelessly motivated to identify the problems that are preventing men from being in their children's lives and finding powerful, sustainable ways to help fathers work through those problems in order to re-engage and remain engaged. Charles is inspired by these wise words, from his mentor, Dr. Anthony Owens from Daytona Beach, Florida: "Don’t let your negative determine your future—keep pushing."
