Fatherhood Coaches lie at the heart of the Family Restoration Network. Our primary motivation is to restore the hearts of fathers to the children and the hearts of children to their fathers. We recruit and train Fatherhood Coaches, primarily in central Virginia, and assign them to mentor men who are emerging from incarceration. The coaches fill two roles – teaching solid fatherhood skills to their protégées and, at times, providing a “father’s heart” to grown men who have barely known their own dads. Some of our Fatherhood Coaches are paid for their service while others simply volunteer.
