InsideOut Dad®

Implemented in more than 25 state Departments of Corrections facilities and countless Federal of Bureau of Prison locations, InsideOut Dad® is the nation's only evidence-based fatherhood program developed specifically for incarcerated fathers.

InsideOut Dad® connects inmate fathers to their families, helping to improve behavior while still incarcerated and to break the cycle of recidivism by developing pro-fathering attitudes, knowledge, and skills, along with strategies to prepare fathers for release. Incarcerated fathers get the tools they need to become more involved, responsible, and committed in the lives of their children -- providing increased motivation for them to get out and stay out. 

The annual cost of incarceration per inmate is $25,000-$40,000 depending on the state. However, the cost for materials for a prison or jail to take one incarcerated father through the InsideOut Dad® program is as little as $60 per father.
