Dads Making a Difference is an educational and mentoring experience for fathers who are behind on child support (and facing jail time for non-payment). Over the course of 13 weeks, dads will gain a deeper understanding of:
- The importance of being involved in their children’s lives and how their positive presence impacts future success;
- Co-parenting, communication and conflict-resolution skills to improve their relationship with the child’s mother; and
- Healthy relationship skills which allow them to be a better parent and employee.
In addition, several judges and attorneys help them navigate the court system, Operation Hope provides financial literacy insights, and the American Job Center assists with employment and interview issues like felony charges or prior incarceration.
Dads Making a Difference has proven to increase the number of dads who contribute emotionally and financially to their children. It also helps them successfully overcome any choices or challenges that landed them in front of a judge.
