Fatherhood & Families

Fatherhood & Families supports fathers as they prepare for release from incarceration, re-enter their communities, re-engage with their families, and find jobs.

Fatherhood & Families services include:

  • Young Fathers, providing intensive pre-release and post-release mentoring for fathers under 25 who are re-entering the Rapid City and Sioux Falls communities.
  • Work Training Program, providing job readiness training and job seeking assistance for re-entering fathers and mothers in Sioux Falls.
