Our Impact: James' Story

James' story gives us reason to believe that anyone can change, despite their past and sheds a beautiful light onto the power of Fathers' Uplift philosohpy and work.

Meet James, his daughter, and granddaughters and hear his journey with Fathers' Uplift.

From the video:

Ever since I participated [in Fathers' Uplift] ...it helped me understand the importance of being a father and it gave me the opportunity to confront and deal with something that had been troubling me for a long time...being missing in action.

The program helped me to accept my choices and forgive myself. And when I forgave myself it enabled me to take another step in reaching out to my daughter.

Support Fathers' Uplift in providing programming to more dads like James.
