A child whose parent has gone to prison is about 6X more likely to go to prison themselves.

4:13 Strong provides training, skills and job placement to equip fathers to break this cycle.

Fathers play a crucial role at home and in the community. Not having a father figure at home can create instability and behavioral issues for kids, and eventually contribute to the cycle of poverty and dependence.

4:13 Strong provides a lifeline to at-risk fathers who want to do things differently. Through our intensive 6-month residential program, we provide men with job training, life skills and job placement. Knowing how to provide for their families, save for the future and be a positive role model gives our men the confidence they need to step up and be there for their kids and families.
