Boston Children’s Museum and Fathers’ Uplift Announce Pilot Program
Date:11/25/2013

Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 25, 2013

Boston Children’s Museum and Fathers’ Uplift, an organization that works to assist fathers in overcoming barriers to remain engaged in their children’s lives, announced a pilot program that will utilize the Museum’s welcoming and inspiring environment as a space for fathers and children to strengthen their relationship and spend positive time together.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, of 12.2 million single parent families in 2012, more than 80% were headed by single mothers. The dream for many young boys, girls, and adults alike, is to have a father who spends time with them. Raising awareness of the importance of fathers, increasing their confidence, and building an appreciation for the importance of their roles as fathers, is critical to ensuring each child has access to a supportive male role model.

“I am so happy we can partner with Fathers’ Uplift on this pilot,” said Carole Charnow, Boston Children’s Museum President and CEO, “We want to make a difference in the lives of children and families, to strengthen families, and to help parents and children share joyful experiences that they never forget.”

Boston Children’s Museum is recognized as leader in addressing the many dimensions of raising healthy, happy, and resilient children. The Museum has a distinguished history of emphasizing accessibility for all families and children, no matter what their status or income. The Museum strives to create an environment where parents and children can engage with each other in the joyful experience of discovery, learning, and connection.

Father’s Uplift is an organization committed to helping fathers overcome challenges they face to being an important part of their children’s lives. “Many men face obstacles such as the lack of resources, confidence, absence of their own parenting role model, and emotional stress related to unhealthy relationships and feelings of guilt or shame,” said Charles Daniels, Albert Schweitzer Fellow and Founder of Fathers’ Uplift. “We want to break down the barriers, whatever they may be, that keep fathers from being engaged with their children. This is a fantastic opportunity to collaborate with Boston’s great children’s museum and to have access to their welcoming environment. We share the same priority of enhancing the well-being of families and children.”

The Pilot program began in November 2013 and extends through June 2014, at which time its results will be evaluated. Father’s Uplift anticipates two families each month will visit the Museum during the pilot.
