Corrections facilities of all types have immense inmate-related costs that must be closely managed. Therefore, it’s important that facilities choose programs that are sustainable for the long term - and fatherhood programming in jails or prisons is no different.
“Sustainability” can be related to staffing, funding, or the kind of program you are using. NFI understands your sustainability needs, and depending on your “sustainability challenge”, NFI offers several solutions:
- If your sustainability challenge is staffing a facilitated, 12-week, group-based fatherhood program, then we recommend our InsideOut Dad® Guide to Family Ties – a self-paced guide that does not require a facilitator.
- If your sustainability challenge is related to limited staff availability, but are still interested in a facilitator-led program, then The 7 Habits of a 24/7 Dad™ Workshop is a good, shorter-length option for your facility.
- If your sustainability challenge is related to securing long-term funding for a fatherhood program, NFI offers fatherhood skill-building resources that have reproducible handouts such as The FatherTopics™ Collection for Non-Custodial Dads or FatherTopics Workshop™: Talking with Mom, and FatherTopics Workshop™: Understanding Domestic Violence.
