Fathering Court

The Family Fathering Court Initiative was created in response to the District’s significant need to provide services to fathers who are unable to maintain healthy relationships with their children and or to provide adequate financial support for their well being. The Fathering Court program is designed to equip fathers with skills that enable them to contribute positively to the emotional and economic well-being of their children.

Beginning in November 2007 as a pilot program, the Fathering Reentry Court (FRC) was launched to help incarcerated men, re-entering the community, reconnect with their children and to pay child support. The Fathering Reentry Court combines needs-assessment, employment skills development and community resources to provide non-custodial parents the ability to better meet the emotional and financial needs of their children.
