FFSJ’s core constituents are low-income fathers and men of color that live in San Joaquin County. The organization strives to advocate for and provide culturally responsive, strengths-based community resources including family strengthening programs, youth empowerment programs, and youth-led action research:
Our Strengthening Families Department supports adults who are formerly incarcerated and supports them for a successful re-entry into society after their release.
Our Youth Program is grounded on a mission driven by social justice and systemic change that will improve the conditions of vulnerable and underrepresented populations and ultimately improve life outcomes of our young people. Our youth engage in various activities focused on positive youth development, leadership development and mentoring, and is a space where they become agents of change in their communities.
Our Elders Program offers various supportive services for the elders in our community. They are given a space to interact with others and build positive relationships. They remain physically and mentally active for their emotional and mental health.
Health Justice Program
Our Health Justice Program works to establish community capacity to advocate for healthy eating, creating healthier communities through built environment change, bridging connections to healthcare and healthcare services, and advancing health equity.
Stockton Trauma Recovery Center
Our Stockton Trauma Recovery Center provides evidence-based trauma treatment and mental health services for victims and their families in both individual and group therapy settings. The TRC will also conduct extensive outreach directly to multi-ethnic, highly diverse populations with high rates of victimization in FFSJ's primary target area and in other high-risk communities. The Case Manager assigned to clients will assist, compile, and submit the client's victim claim application to CalVCP. And more services.
