More than 20 percent of the veterans in our programs are the parents of minor children, but have lost contact with their children as a result of homelessness, substance abuse history or failure to make child support payments. This program helps fathers reconnect with their children, which is an essential part of the reintegration process.

Our fathers program was developed to meet this need. Using the employment services provided in the Veterans in Progress program as a basis, we help them build fatherhood skills with educational tools, and educate them on how best to manage family conflict, establish child support payment and co-parenting schedules so they can become engaged fathers
