The Fatherless Epidemic By The Numbers
Communities across the country are in the middle of a Fatherless Epidemic right now. At Fathers’ Uplift we are working to help solve this by assisting fathers in overcoming barriers that prevent them from remaining engaged in their children’s lives. See what we are up against and what we’re doing about it here!

Thank You for a Successful 2017 POWER Gala!
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!
