FSW offers several restorative justice programs that take as their starting point that lives can be turned around through education, life and job skills training, parenting support and the support of their families and communities. Follow the links for full program details and contact information (if not already provided).
Programs marked with ** operate in the Westchester County Jail and work to continue with participants after their return to the community.
- **NavigatingFatherhood – Workshop sessions, support groups, individual counseling and mentoring sessions for incarcerated fathers.
- **REAL Parenting –Gives mostly non-custodial parents who are behind on their child support the job placement, parenting skills and financial literacy resources they need to get out of debt, stay out of debt, and meet their family financial commitments. Parents are offered a path back into their children’s lives through a combination of life skills, employment training and other key employment and child support benchmarks.
