Fathers In Transition Program (FIT)

FIT Flyer for July update 2022.webp

ICCFS and FATHER ENGAGEMENT in partnership with Fresh Start Program and PACT Program

This program is designed for African American Fathers who have been involved in the Criminal Justice system. These fathers face barriers to housing and employment. The goal of our program is to assist fathers with employment and housing so they can positively impact the lives of their children and the community.
