Fatheread teaches inmate fathers to read to their children - Page 3

Attending Fatheread at Wayne earns the prisoners a special three-hour visit with their children. In the usual weekly visits, the prisoner meets with several visitors at once in a room where other prisoners and families meet. In their Fatheread visit, the prisoner’s only role will be that of father.

At 8:30 Sunday morning, the men stared out barred windows at the prison parking lot. They’ve asked their families to bring the children to the prison for this special visit. For some of the children and families, that was asking too much. But by 9 a.m., four dads were playing with seven happy children.
