The Father Center of New Jersey
The Father Center of New Jersey is an innovative community organization that believes that children grow best when father figures are involved in their lives. Some fathers face challenges that prevent them from being fully engaged with their children, and we are here to support them – including adolescents, juvenile offenders, and ex-offenders who are re-entering the community. We provide opportunities for growth and success in a safe and comfortable space.
The Father Center offers fathers the emotional, social, and economic resources to improve their lives and those of their children. From stress management training and anger management programs to adult computer classes, we support fathers in gaining the life skills to be there for their families. We believe that when fathers are empowered to be good parents, the entire community benefits.
To support men in gaining the skills and meeting the responsibilities of fatherhood.
Our vision is to empower every father to positively impact his children and family – socially, emotionally, and economically.
At The Father Center of NJ we love our volunteers and our board members. If you are interested in lending your support to our team, please reach out to Karen Andrade-Mims, our executive Director at (609) 695-3663 or by writing to: email@example.com
