Chattanooga Detention Center Offers Parenting Class for Fathers

Fathers incarcerated at Chattanooga’s Silverdale Detention Center now have the opportunity to participate in a four-week course intended to make them better dads, the Chattanooga Times Free Press reports. The program, named 24/7 Dad, addresses basic parenting skills and self-betterment through interactive classes in the detention center, with the local Salvation Army also providing classes and assistance to inmates after release. The Rutherford County Adult Detention Center has a similar successful program for incarcerated mothers, offering parenting classes and increased visits with their children.
