WE ARE CHANGING

Fathers Rise Together is now Family Rise Together.  Understanding the various structures of families these days we have to keep in mind that we are all family and have to work as a unified front in order to stabilize home and develop community.

Why FRT

In our community poverty, hopelessness and boredom is an one-eyed ogress. There is a feeling of defeat overwhelming many individuals and families. The daily struggle of providing the basic needs for their household plagues their dreams with doubt. Family Rise Together has spent the last five years researching and working with individuals and families.

Our qualitative research states clearly, we can no longer ignore the rate of recidivism of incarceration, high school dropout, sexual abuse; (sex trafficking); chemical dependency/abuse, and mental health concerns for families. Families must be served a one unit to addresses the deep-rooted seeds of despair, depression, lack of resources and financial encumbrances. Our communities will no longer wait.

The Need

In our communities families’ unity and synergy are off balance. The off balance within our families’ is rippling into the communities our families reside around and in.  Unemployment, Underemployment and chemical dependency, substance abuse, lack of father’s presence and involvement in Child Protection Services (CHIPS/CPS) cases across our nation is detrimental.

Child welfare agencies still struggle to involve fathers fully. If a father does not live with the mother and is not regularly involved with the child, extra effort may be needed to identify or locate the father.  

According to the author of STRONG Fathers; Brian Clark,  “An involved responsible fatherhood program can assist dads in seeing themselves as part of a team seeking to create a healthy and safe home or homes for their children.”

Get in Touch

We are always looking to talk to the community to develop relationships that will build family’s and to find ways to serve you better.
