InsideOut Dad® Overview

InsideOut Dad® is the nation's only evidence-based fatherhood program designed specifically for incarcerated fathers. InsideOut Dad® helps reduce recidivism rates by reconnecting incarcerated fathers to their families, providing the motivation to get out and stay out. Popular among both inmates and ex-offenders, InsideOut Dad® is used in over 400 facilities in all 50 states and has been proven to increase family contact and improve inmate knowledge and attitudes. State and federal facilities, pre-release programs, community organizations, and more are using this life-changing reentry program.
