Families with Parents in Prison

Alvis House Family Reentry Program

This program begins while the father is still in prison, where the fathers receive visits from their families, attend parenting classes and receive life-skills classes. Alvis House staff also work with the mothers and children. They begin attending classes and support groups and receiving employment leads, clothing and children’s items as needed. Once the father is released, both parents and children continue to work with a case manager. The young adult reentry program also provides parenting skills education as part of its family-focused approach.
