February 2020: Father’s Uplift
Fathers’ Uplift is the nation’s first outpatient mental health center dedicated to paternal health and male family engagement. Located in historic Codman Square in Dorchester, Fathers’ Uplift’s empowers fathers to overcome barriers and become positively engaged in their children’s lives. We uplift fathers and strengthen families. 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.
