About Us

Fathers’ UpLift is the nation’s first outpatient mental health center dedicated to paternal health and male family engagement. It offers an innovative, self-sustaining, and scalable clinical mental health care model. The programs provided by Fathers’ UpLift help fathers address their often complicated challenges and needs associated with becoming and being a father, while also helping their children, families, and society overall.

 Nationally, 25 million children are growing up without a father or male mentor in their lives. 94,000 fatherless children live in the city of Boston.

For children growing up without a father, poverty rates double, emotional and behavioral issues increase, as well as high school dropout statistics, crime, and incarceration rates.

Fathers who are active in their children’s lives report improvement in their sense of purpose, increased employment, higher income, and decreased recidivism rates.

 Fathers’ UpLift is committed to addressing this mental health gap to ensure that all children grow up with the positive presence of a nurturing, emotionally available, and loving father or father-figure who is actively engaged in their lives.
