  • Fatherhood Course

    Strength Training for Strong Fathers

    Fatherhood classes for men who are in arrears with child support. This course helps fathers understand their vital role in their child's life. It helps them understand their own 'fatherhood' issues and challenges them to think proactively about their role as a father for the rest of their lives. It also helps them address relationship issues with the mother of their children. Ultimately, efforts in this class will lead to more involved fathering and address visitation issues.

    We will post course schedules here and on our FatherWorks page when they become available. Inquire about this and other courses by contacting us.

From a Client:

"That Paraphernalia in my drawer is NOT mine!..."

"I'm holding it for a friend, so she doesn't relapse!"

No They Didn't!

From a Client after a failed drug screen:

"I went to check out a pair of work-boots from Craig's List, and 3 girls invited me in, and FORCED me to do drugs... I woke up a couple hours later and escaped... I went to the ER 'cause I thought they'd done somethin' to me...and found out I had cocaine, heroin and meth in me. They must have given me a speedball or somethin' - and they took all my money, too..." "I'm lucky to be alive...."

No They Didn't!

Judge:"Where have you been?"

“I went to 4th Street and I ran into a girl that I know. She gave me some skittles, and I ate them because I like candy. Turns out they were laced with LSD and I went on a trip for a week. I'm not sure exactly what happened.”

Judge - Now laughing: "I'm sending you back to prison."

No They Didn't!

Building within the family

Focusing on rebuilding family relationships is key. Its not just the family reaching out to support the individual, but instilling a responsible role within the family for our clients.

Mentoring Works

Now where do I go? And how do I move on? I didn't know how I was going to do it, or what I was going to do. The Foundation for Family Life and MENTORWORKS - That was the answer.


One of the benefits I received, is a clean and sober place to live. You're surrounded by awesome people with generous hearts, who would go to the ends of the Earth for you.


I hit rock bottom in several ways: my family had all given up on me...and this foundation hasn't. They've accepted me, and I continue to pursue my sobriety and my goals.


When you realize all the harm you've caused your family and friends - but more importantly, the harm you've caused yourself. When you get there, where do you turn?
