George J. Fleming is a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He is a graduate of Clarion University with a Bachelor of Science, and has worked in the Human Services field for the past 35 years. At an early age, George realized that he had a 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.
In 2016, George founded the nonprofit 501c3 organization The Fathers Touch. This organization was birthed over the years from his passion for working with men and families. Over his extensive career George noticed an undervalued and missing link in families and the community at large, men and fathers. The Fathers Touch is designed to provide education, training, coaching, opportunities and cultural and recreational activities to help men reach their maximum potential as fathers, husbands and leaders in their homes and community.
George established CG Consulting and Training LLC. to provide workshops, trainings and consulting to individuals, groups, leaders, churches and corporations. George teaches with compassion and passion the Intimate Partners Violence Training as a consultant and group facilitator for Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh Men’s Program. George is a contracted provider for various agencies for: Father Engagement, Trauma Informed Care, The Effects of Trauma on the African American Community, Chemical Dependency/Recovery, Leadership Development and other subject matters.
George helps support and partner with families rearing children who have emotional and mental health needs to improve their quality of life. This work is directly related to developing collaborative relationships with community organizations and service providers that provide services to men, their families, and their children. George’s 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’s goals is to help as many men possible, to live purposeful lives.
Mr. Fleming has recently accepted a position as the Supervisor at the Light of Life Rescue Mission Men’s Shelter. He looks forward to aiding in the ministries mission to transform lives through the love of Christ by providing food, shelter and hope to men, women, and children experiencing homelessness, poverty or addiction.
