Fathers Building Futures

Fathers Building Futures (FBF) is a social enterprise based in Albuquerque, led by a team of professionals and formerly incarcerated parents who serve as mentors and supervisors to parents (mostly fathers) who are returning home from prison. One in 10 New Mexican children will have a parent in prison at some point in their lives, and these children are seven times more likely to be incarcerated at some point than children of non-incarcerated parents. Our main purpose is to break this generational cycle of incarceration by reuniting these children with parents who have stabilized and become role models. FBF’s mission is to fill the post-release vocational and financial gap, “to ensure parents and families experiencing barriers from incarceration receive the best opportunities for stability—emotionally, socially and financially.” This is accomplished by offering essential employment, financial, and life/parenting skills to parents as they progress towards becoming responsible parents and contributing members of the New Mexico community. Fathers Building Futures is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation.
