Fatherhood & Employment
UIH Family Partners
employment & fatherhood programs
UIH Family Partners has been a pioneer in the emerging field of fatherhood programs for over a decade, while the organization itself dates to the mid-twentieth century. The program now works with men to develop their employment skills and helps them to seek, find, and keep jobs. Many of these men have had some kind of involvement with the criminal justice system, and we know that approximately 10,000 now-incarcerated men will be released over the next decade to Mercer County.
- What kinds of opportunities are there for these men to rebuild their lives, support their children, and make a contribution to their communities?
- How have other communities responded to these challenges?
- How can organizations like UIH best support men making this kind of transition?
A successful match will very likely involve a senior who is willing to make a serious commitment to a particular area of this organization’s work.
