The Build A Mom and Build A Dad Workshops will help to reduce recidivism rates and strengthen family bonds. It provides parents with the necessary skills to effectively communicate with their kids. This could be a deciding factor for improving children's behavior and performance at school. The program helps build a Mom and Dad who are responsible at home and engaged outside with their community.
