We are bringing together men and fathers throughout Union County, NJ, emphasizing the importance of fatherhood, awareness and in some situations educating while reminding others to think of what is happening in their lives.
The Union County Fatherhood Initiative Coalition (UCFIC) has pioneered healthy father engagement, education and support activities since its start in 2012. UCFIC is dedicated to preparing and supporting fathers and men who lack the resources and connections to fulfill their potential in all spheres of life, including their significant roles as fathers to their children. With Union County NJ as its service area, UCFIC focuses on communities with higher numbers of African American, Latino-Hispanic and low-income men: Elizabeth, Plainfield, Linden, Rahway and Roselle.
