A Nice Story About Fathers Who Are in Jail and Their Daughters

I trust my father and I trust that he’s going to keep trying.

That’s what one daughter said to CNN’s Lisa Ling about her father who is locked up in jail in this touching video. The story is about a special program in Richmond, Virginia, where the local prison holds a father/daughter dance to help keep the parental relationship alive. In this case, the hope is that these men will understand more solidly what is at stake with their efforts to stay out of prison. With our ChIPs program, the goal is to help the children of incarcerated parents overcome the absence of one or even both parents.
