The Work For Success program is beginning its 3rd year of operation. The program has served 131 fathers over the last 2 years with over 65% of those fathers giving back to our community through employment. Goals for the program include helping fathers reconnect and provide for their children through responsible parenting/fatherhood. Fathers attend a 3 week workshop which teaches skills in the following areas: finances, parenting, and conflict resolution and anger management, and co-parenting techniques. Following a next steps graduation, fathers are assisted through case management and employment interventions to access needed resources and in all aspects of finding, securing and keeping employment.
