Our Uplifting Coaches are experienced mentors, fathers, and father figures. Each coach has overcome a significant barrier (homelessness, depression, anxiety, unemployment, fear, feelings of inadequacy, etc…) in their life that almost prevented them from remaining engaged in the lives of their children. As a coach, they utilize their personal experiences to assist fathers in managing the stressors related to fatherhood, as well as achieving their desired goals.
Our fathers receive various opportunities to spend time with their children in a safe and fun setting during our uplifting retreats. Participating fathers and father figures receive support, encouragement and guidance from an assigned Uplifting Coach and Clinician.
Clinical Support & Group Therapy
Our clinical team consists of experienced clinicians who specialize in trauma, anger management, group counseling, individual counseling, and child & family counseling. Our clinicians provide ongoing therapeutic support to fathers and their children. Whether they are helping fathers strengthen their communication skills, identifying resources, and/or managing conflict, our clinicians are committed to helping fathers remain emotionally and physically present for themselves and their children.

Consultation & Trainings
We assist agencies in developing creative ways to increase male engagement through our consultative services. We have worked with community centers, as well as substance abuse programs in helping them think about ways in which they can engage fathers more effectively. We strive to assist agencies in creating sustainable methods that will engage and support fathers at various systemic levels. See our trainings.
