UIH Family Partners Annual 5K for Families

Hamilton Township, NJ

 

E

stablished in 1859 as an orphanage, Union Industrial Home for Children; UIH Family Partners continues to provide a comprehensive array of client-centered and outcome-based programs dedicated to bolstering fragile families, and developing resiliency in young people.

 

For two decades, UIH Family Partners has offered the greater Trenton community, services focusing on the unique needs and challenges faced by fathers and men. UIH Family Partners’ Fatherhood Programs equip and empower unemployed or under-employed fathers to play a more positive and active role in their children’s lives, emotionally as well as financially. We also offer teen pregnancy prevention strategies through the NJ Personal Responsibility Education Program (NJPREP) for young men to avoid premature fatherhood.

 

Outcome measures indicate that our programs are making an important difference in the lives of families across the county.  These programs and services include:

  •  The Father Center – an education and resource center where fathers, young and old, learn to become Dads or prevent unwanted pregnancies; information and referrals offered; Dress2Impress™ career clothing available.
  •  Operation Fatherhood – a dynamic program that offers parenting education; child support assistance; HSE Prep; work readiness and job placement assistance through Work First NJ funding; resume creation and review; post-hire support; computer literacy training; and parent-child bonding activities.

 

The overwhelming majority of men served, are men of color, young men who live on the fringes of society and face systematic barriers to employment, and men who have had involvement with the criminal justice system. UIH Family Partners is also proud to be a founding member of the Mercer County Reentry Task Force.

 

Because the agency is strongly committed to exploring the relationship between theory and practice and to sharing best practices with other organizations, UIH Family Partners hosts annual Fatherhood events that address cutting edge research in the field, bring together renowned presenters, and attract social and human services professionals from across the Tri-State area.
