The Family Healing Conversation™ strengthens the father’s emotional connection to his child(ren) by appealing to his protective spirit and his willingness to provide for them. A Family Coach meets with each inmate or newly released man privately, identifying 14 potential areas of child-rearing agreement. Next the Coach meets with the mother and may finally meet with both parents together. The goal is to secure a comprehensive, signed Agreement which guides ongoing decisions about child-rearing.
The Job Readiness Predictor™ helps prepare the inmate to secure legal income upon release. Our proprietary system, the Skilldex tool, classifies 6,000+ skills in 43 employment categories. The Winslow Assessment measures 24 personality traits essential to personal success and career advancement. These results produce detailed reports for each Returning Father. We then comb through local employer databases to find those places willing to interview formerly incarcerated men. By comparing each man’s qualifications to the needs of potential employers, we create a Gap Analysis, which successfully identifies which inmates are most suitable for which jobs. Employers value FRN as a respected, external, human resource team which sends pre-screened, pre-qualified, suitable men for interviews.
The Fatherhood Coaching Process™ assigns a Fatherhood Coach to mediate with government agencies and employers to keep the Returning Father from returning to prison for non-violent crimes (such as failure to pay child support). The Process also encourages alternative sentencing, which spares the public the cost of imprisonment.
