Fun with Father

Fun with Father is designed to allow inmates a unique opportunity to spend quality time with their children. The program consists of a day filled with crafts and recreational activities to strengthen relationships, increase problem solving skills, build trust, and challenge fears. A spiritual component is incorporated also. Leading up to the day of family activities, a class on fatherhood is taught by our FJPM chaplains. Volunteers are welcomed to help with this program.



“My son really needed this
special time with his father.”

In the Name of the Father Christmas Event

In the Name of the Father is a program that community supporters donate gifts for children of inmates. The week before the program, inmates “shop” through donated gifts to select for his children. On a Saturday in December, inmates and their children gather in the Chapel for a Christmas devotion and sharing of gifts.

Contact Brooke Stultz for ways you can be involved in this program.
