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.

That knowledge of what is working and what is not can inform approaches to improve systems so they work better for entrepreneurs and job creators of all backgrounds, races/ethnicities and income levels.
