DC Court Program Turns Fathers Into Dads
Nothing terribly funny about this post: a DC-area program called “Fathering Court” helps incarcerated fathers learn how to be dads. The criminals are encouraged and helped with employment, so that once they leave prison, they are able to actively and positively effect their childrens’ lives. It’s good to see a program that re-aligns a criminal’s perceptions of his familial responsibility. Maybe this program can disprove the old sentiment of “once a criminal, always a criminal.” In fact, out of the program’s 50 graduates, only ONE has be re-arrested thus far.
Fathering Court is a three-year-old program that was funded by a grant from the Department of Justice. Read the link below for more details.
