The Center for Urban Families was founded in 1999 by Joseph T. Jones, Jr. and located in Baltimore is a:
1) leading voice in the national conversation on responsible fatherhood.
2) successful advocate for child support reform in Maryland.
3) trainer that helps nonprofits across the country strengthen low-income families, and
4) support network for Baltimore’s most vulnerable citizens. We are the Center for Urban Families.
Since 1999, CFUF has remained at the front-line of addressing some of Baltimore’s most pressing issues, including poverty, unemployment, father-absence and family disintegration.
CFUF’s core mission is to strengthen urban communities by helping fathers & families achieve stability and economic success.
Central to CFUF’s mission is the belief that men-the most disconnected and underserved citizens in urban communities-who connect with women, their children, and the workplace are key to the restoration of stability and optimism.
Since 1999, CFUF has served over 26,000 vulnerable Baltimoreans providing the bridge that many have needed to attain stability, while emerging as a leader in the national conversation on responsible fatherhood and black male achievement. CFUF has grown to serve more than 1,500 men and women a year, securing over 6,400 full time jobs for them upon completion of the workforce development initiative.
