Your financial support helps Dads like Jose Santiago. Here’s his story:
When it came to compassion and communication, Jose didn’t have many examples to look up to growing up. At 13, he left home and spent life on the streets. School stopped, and time in prison soon took its place.
When released, the dynamic between him and his children began to reflect his own upbringing. That’s when he knew he needed to change.
Jose came to the right place. At Fortune, where over 50% of our staff have justice involvement experience, we truly understand his story. In fact, our community-supported services are specifically tailored for it.
You make our work possible. Give today.
Here, Jose interacts with counselors like Elvin Garcia in our Family Services program, who take time to show him how thoughtful communication can transform the relationship he has with his son. Being a great dad isn’t just about authority—it’s about really hearing, too:
Over time, the lines of communication are getting stronger. Today, Jose is discovering how to give the love that he never received. This Father’s Day, help others discover what it means to parent with compassion. Your support allows our holistic programs to thrive, impacting more dads with justice involvement, like Jose.
