Nurturing Fatherhood And Families In Baltimore

Center for Urban Families

The unrest in Baltimore in April brought intense focus on the racial and economic inequalities in certain sections of the city. And, also on the work local organizations are doing to help those communities overcome obstacles to jobs that pay a livable wage.

One of those organizations is the ‘Center For Urban Families,’ located near the epicenter of the unrest in Penn North. The non-profit runs programs geared toward everyone, but it focuses on fathers and their role in families. Joe Jones founded the “Center for Urban Families;” he’s President and CEO. Tom Hall spoke with him in 2013 for our series about inequality, “The Lines Between Us.” Today, just before Father’s Day, Sheilah checks back in with Joe Jones. 

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
