SUCCESSES

 

HOW FOTM MEASURES SUCCESS

Though we are encouraged by the promise that Program graduations provide, the real test and measure of our effectiveness lies in what happens afterward.  The primary metrics that FOTM uses to gauge successes are:

1. Recidivism rates

2. Re-Employment rates

3. Extent and quality of Re-Integration with families

(Though metric #3 is subjective, its importance to those we support
and their families compels us to monitor and evaluate as best we can.)

OUR  SUCCESSES

Recidivism

Of our 175 Level I graduates, 50 have been released from prison within the past month to three-years. Their recidivism rate is a remarkable 1%.

Re-Employment

We’re also pleased to report that Level I graduates have had a 98% employment rate, Covid limitations notwithstanding.

Family Re-Integration

 To date we estimate that 98% of our Level I graduates have meaningful engagements with their families, and especially their children. 

Program Graduations

To date we have graduated over 300 individuals from our Level I Program.  Of the 50 post-release individuals, all are engaged with post-release support, with most meeting weekly with FOTM mentors at community centers to build their family, leadership, and career skills. Ten men have graduated from Level II training, all of whom currently work as mentors for Level I participants.  We are grooming multiple of these to head mentoring and support in future state and national FOTM operations.  

Jim and Jedidiah are graduates of our program who are certified mentors. Now, they go back into the prison to teach and lead by example. Here they are receiving awards from Polk Correctional, our young adults prison.
