‘Inside Out Dad’ Teaches Incarcerated Dads to be Better Fathers

WASHINGTON COUNTY — Every Tuesday inside Purgatory Correctional Facility a special class titled “InsideOut Dad®” takes place. It is a program aimed at teaching incarcerated dads how to be better fathers and one that has the potential to positively change the lives of both the inmates and their families.

There is a fatherhood crisis sweeping across the nation, said Kelly Kendall, the class instructor and fatherhood education coordinator. From the media’s portrayal of the “idiot” father think Homer Simpson — to the staggering real statistics, fatherhood is floundering.

Hear from the fathers at Purgatory Correctional on how this evidence-based fatherhood program is changing their lives.
