Allegheny Family Network’s Fathers Involved Now Program
George J. Fleming is a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He is a graduate of Clarion University and has worked in the human services field for the past 30 years.
At an early age, he realized that he had compassion for the plight of all people and a desire to serve them. His background in the human service field includes several decades of executive administration and oversight for alcohol, tobacco, and other drug treatment, residential group homes, mental health services, reunification services, homeless shelters, mentorship, and prevention services.
George is currently the Program Supervisor for Allegheny Family Network’s Fathers Involved Now Program, which is a family-run organization, helping support and partner with families rearing children who have emotional and mental health needs to improve their quality of life.
His passion allows him to see opportunities to address gaps in services and the stigmas men face at various levels of care. One of his life goals is to help as many men as possible live purposeful lives.
Christina Paternoster, Program Director of PA Parent and Family Alliance, tells us that “George is a valuable partner for the PA Parent and Family Alliance providing us with a father’s point of view and experienced guidance on how to encourage father involvement.”
