Abstract: 

Research has shown that fathers returning to their families and communities after incarceration often face multiple challenges, including lack of housing or employment, large child support debt, and complicated family relationships. This discussion explored a variety of ways in which fatherhood programming can help returning fathers and their families overcome these challenges.

The panel included a researcher, two practitioners, and a program participant who will highlight strategies for providing reentry services and support for returning fathers. Based on Urban Institute research, the session offered key considerations and recommendations for correctional agencies and community organizations looking to implement effective practices to facilitate formerly incarcerated fathers’ positive reentry to their families and communities. The panel also provided a list of helpful resources.
