A Proud Partnership:
Our partnership with New Profit isn’t just a milestone for us – it’s a giant leap forward in our mission. We believe this collaboration will provide us with a unique platform to amplify our efforts, empower more fathers, and make an even more significant positive impact on the families and communities we serve.
The Impact In Numbers:
Despite ongoing efforts, many children grow up in homes without their biological fathers. Reports by the National Fatherhood Initiative suggest that over 70% of African American children and 50% of Hispanic children fall into this category. Our mission is to change this narrative.
With the new resources provided by our partnership with New Profit, we’re setting an ambitious goal: to increase our service outreach by more than 30% within the coming year. By directly serving more fathers, we can contribute to better childhood outcomes, strengthen family units, and foster healthier communities.
The Driving Force: Our Services
Our core services at Fathers UpLift include providing mental health counseling, coaching, advocacy, and resource support. We’re committed to assisting fathers in overcoming barriers like systemic racism, emotional trauma, addiction, and other challenges that often prevent them from being actively involved in their children’s lives.
The expansion of our program capacity, courtesy of this partnership, will allow us to offer even more services and resources. This includes personal development initiatives and systemic advocacy programs to combat the broader issues affecting fathers.
