The UpLifting Journey
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.
A comfortable and friendly therapy experience, provided through clinicians who share our population’s backgrounds. Our Clinical Support program is the foundation on which we build the rest of our work. This pillar is where Fathers’ UpLift began, providing clinical therapy services to men and families to help them navigate challenges related to parenting, healthy expression, relationships, and trauma.
In order to enhance our Clinical Support program beyond therapy, we began Father-to-Father (F2F) Coaching services, which now serve as our second pillar of services, in which we provide personal mentorship, guidance and assistance with matters like job searches, custody challenges, and more.
The Youth Enrichment Program focuses on teaching young men the path towards manhood, personal development, and community service. We develop self-confidence; teach skills on how to interact with authority figures such as parents, school officials, and the police; improve decision-making and communication skills; and increase youth awareness about substance use disorders.
