It is no secret that racial minorities are overrepresented in the prison population compared to the total US population. According to Pew Research, in 2016, minorities accounted for 36 percent of the total US population, but an astonishing 70 percent of the prison population. It follows that families and children that are disrupted by a parent’s incarceration are primarily composed of racial minorities. In fact, 17 percent of Hispanic/Latino families will have at least one member of their immediate family incarcerated at some point. Unfortunately, the problems associated with incarceration extend far and wide. Beyond simply race and social class.Read More
The dads at Fathers Building Futures built my family a dinner table that was built with the same love that is gathered around the table at each meal.Thank you.

So I needed a countertop for a new project in my kitchen at home. I remembered the incredible work I saw that was crafted by the men of the Fathers Building Futures program at PB&J Family Services. My Counter top needed to be 2 feet by 4 feet and at least 2 inches thick. What I found when I arrived at the workshop was more than I could have ever expected. I was given at least 5 choices of wood with recommendations from the craftsmen based on my description of intended uses. I made my selection and a week later I picked up a counter top that was highly polished and finished, crafted to my specifications and ready to use. It has become a conversation piece in my home and I continue to refer people to Fathers Building Futures where I know that the men take great pride in their work and guarantee the finest quality product. I love my counter top!
