Fathers’ UpLift is our first E-Track grantee! Learn more about our Pilot Emerging Organizations Track here.


Fathers’ UpLift works to assist fathers in overcoming barriers (financial, oppressive, emotional, traumatic, and addiction-based barriers) that prevent them from remaining engaged in their children’s lives. We also provide mentoring, cultural outings, and counseling to children who are growing up without their fathers. We uplift fathers and strengthen families nationwide through service, love, and encouragement.


Target Population

Fathers ages 18-65 who reside in Mattapan, Roxbury and Dorchester.
Children ages 5-24 that are residing in absent father households in these neighborhoods.
95% of Fathers’ Uplift fathers and the children served are of African descent.
