Men enter our programs with broken relationships with themselves, their children, and their community. Through group therapy sessions, coaching, and organized retreats we meet fathers where they are at and introduce interventions designed to boost their coping skills, as well as their sense of empowerment and efficacy. Ultimately the goal is to allow fathers to sustainably re-engage with their children. Our fathers positively engage with their communities and overcome obstacles every day. They rely on each other, our staff, and our coaches for support and love.
Fathers who have completed the program have the opportunity to become coaches -- to give back and stay involved. Our model grows and sustains itself.
Being here has saved my life.
[Charles is] a great public speaker, who talks from the heart and makes sure everyone’s connected and engaged.
More programs like Fathers Uplift are needed.
