Work for Success: Developing Dads, Building Relationships
Work for Success provides services to low-income fathers, such as case management, mentoring, work readiness, fathering skills, financial management and family violence prevention. Work for Success can help fathers resolve state-owed arrears and focuses on re-engaging fathers in the lives of their children.

Work for Success begins with an intensive four week personal and professional development training program that includes workshops on financial management, building healthy relationships and family violence prevention.
Following the four week course, we provide supported employment services, including job search and job retention. We also assist dads with individualized case management by developing a life plan and helping them remove barriers through referrals to community services and resources.
Mentoring is available at a weekly meeting called The Connect Group. This group meets every Monday evening from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Anyone interested in participating or volunteering is welcome to attend this social gathering. Please call ahead to reserve your spot!
