Fathers & Families of San Joaquin
December 23, 2011

FFSJ does amazing work with minimal resources. We plow forward despite many barriers. We are grassroots and we get into the hood where our work is vital to building hope among our underserved communities. There have been countless testimonials from youth and young parents who have shared our experience and love, and found some hope in their future. We are well networked within our local activist and service communities and well connected to the bigger statewide and national support and change communities. We are currently promoting the concept of a Community Empowerment Zone with a central focus of a Youth Empowerment Center to build out from. We have a solid Board of Directors that provide thorough fiscal oversight.

Ways to make it better...

find strong legal support, build a massive fundraising campaign, increase staff saleries, provide more youth stipends (jobs).
