Destination...Dad Mentor – Each mentor is matched with an incarcerated dad. They begin communicating through letter writing and then have the option to meet inside the institution. Upon release, the mentor assists the dad in connecting with his children, following their Reentry Plan, and introducing him to positive social networks.

  • InsideOut Dad Volunteer – Volunteers co-facilitate a 12-session curriculum created by the National Fatherhood Initiative.

  • Messages Project Volunteer – Volunteers videotape inmates recording messages to their children and work with them to complete the necessary Messages Project documents.

  • Day Visit Volunteer – Day Visit volunteers provide supervision and transportation for children to and from the facilities to visit their fathers. The volunteers co-facilitate the visits and provide documentation of the interaction between inmates and their children. Training is given in the use of the assessment tool for the visitation observation.
