Our Programs

We have established ourselves as a full-functioning Fatherhood Program. We have various outlets and resource programs in the area and continue to establish ourselves as a premiere fatherhood establishment. Take a look below...

Mens Group

The cornerstone of the Community Fathers movement.

This is a weekly support group for men in the community. All men are welcome to come and join us. This lighthearted, yet informative group meeting is a breath of fresh air in that we give each other the necessary motivation to continue through our weekly trials.

Re-Entry Group

Formed to establish a relationship with inmates in the county jails, Community Fathers Inc. works to help address inmates questions, concerns, or issues prior to being released.

 

By offering them the support necessary to pay their dues for the crimes they have committed, Community Fathers mentors provide these incarcerated individuals the motivation and tools needed to remain positive by holding them accountable as men of standard.

 

Preparing them for their release and putting together a plan of action is key to the success of this endeavor and to their re-entry into the community.

 

This group meets on Friday at 6:00 P.M. at the Schenectady County Jail.

Community Service Volunteers

One of our ideologies is the importance of giving back to the community, not only with our presence but by our efforts.

 

We feel it necessary to set the example by being involved in all aspects of community engagements.  Whether it is community cleanups, board meetings on several levels, neighborhood coalitions, community events, marching for a cause, program building, or city and county representation, Community Fathers are there and ready to give to our community.
