Fathers Building Futures – The Business of Keeping Fathers Out of Prison


December 20, 2017

Fathers Building Futures in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is using jobs to break a vicious cycle of incarceration. Nearly half of all inmates in New Mexico return to prison. But through Fathers Building Futures, 3 out of 4 stay out of prison and keep jobs that allow them to support their families.

This video is part of a City Alive series featuring our city’s entrepreneurs and business owners.
