Healing Centered, Culturally Responsive, Transformative Change for Fathers, Youth, and Families.


Our Mission

To educate, empower, and build the capacity for fathers to become more self-aware and self-directed, resulting in sustainable positive transformation.

Our Beliefs

We believe that at the core of our community’s issues the father plays a major role in its ailment, as well as in its healing.

Our Programs

Father-focused, work readiness skills, resiliency training, and strength-based life skills curriculum.

Our engagement employs a Healing Centered, Cultural-Based interdisciplinary approach to effectively bring about a communal transformation of the individual, the family, and the community.

Our Goals

To restrengthen the Black family foundation, by healing and rebuilding the Black family, and restoring a refined man to the core strength of that foundation, by supporting Black fathers in reclaiming Black manhood.

The FatherShop delivers innovative father-focused programming rooted in the principles of healing-centered engagement through both an institutional and community based reentry support and engagement, as well as peer mentoring of youth and adults from the ages of 14 - 24 and 25 - 60.
