A Father's Promise

In essence, the modern day father contributes to his children’s health and well-being by maintaining a healthy relationship with the Mother; provide emotional and financial support, appropriate monitoring and discipline; and most importantly maintains a permanent and loving presence in their lives.

Resources To Re-Entry

An expungement is a legal order from a Judge that requires the prosecutors/district attorneys, state police, local police, and other state criminal justice agencies to ERASE something from a record.

A pardon means you have been forgiven by the government for the crime you committed, and leads to having your convictions erased from your record. 

Opportunities For Growth

Skills to Succeed

Our hope is that all fathers see and feel the importance to increase the amount of time they spend with their children, improve their parenting behaviors, increase economic security for their children, and develop healthier partner and coparenting relationships.
