The Manhood Tree is comprised of five initiatives that aim support men and fathers by emphasizing the importance their mental and physical health, facilitating groups and community conversations and providing them the opportunity to tell their story. The Manhood Tree Initiatives stretch men outside of their comfort zone and encourage them to venture into topic and areas of their lives they don’t often visit. Individuals that participate in our programs are able to release the baggage of their past and move confidently toward their future with new vigor, awareness and vision. The five initiatives of the Manhood Tree are:
1. The Manhood Tree Group
2. Men’s Health Initiative
3. The Fatherhood Manologues
4. The Fatherhood Pole
5. The Manhood Tree Podcast
The Manhood Tree initiatives are provided as ongoing groups, community-based activities and events for men in the community. Our programs seek to allow the true voice of men be heard through their stories and in our groups;
"The Manhood Tree provides a portal for men to express their full self "
while also highlighting the importance of fathers and the need for men to be aware of their physical and mental health. Too often, men and fathers are presented through the lenses of an old narrative of manhood and fatherhood when in actuality men are taking a more active role in the lives of their children and are more open to addressing the trauma that may be holding them back in their lives.
The Manhood Tree provides a portal for men to express their full self and surround themselves with other men who are working on being the best version of themselves as well.
"The initiatives of The Manhood Tree provide opportunities for men to build, bond and grow into the man and father they want to be."

Black fatherhood all the time
We asked a group of Black fathers from all walks of life to come in and answer some questions about Black Fatherhood. Click the video below to see the trailer and click the link to see the interviews. They were great!
