Fatherhood Initiative Program
The Fatherhood Initiative Program: is a court ordered and voluntary program that is designed to assist fathers (and mothers) to put themselves in a better financial and emotional position to better provide for their children. This is achieved through paying their child support and being a positive, active role model in their child’s life. The Fatherhood Initiative Case manager works with the fathers by referring them to community resources, such as; drug treatment, GED classes, job skills training, resume-building, and seeking better employment. Participants are required to attend a fathering class (parenting classes for the mothers), through these classes the fathers are taught how significant their role is in the healthy growth and development of their children.
Sexual Assault Support Services
The Sexual Assault Support Services (SASS) of Marshall County offers victim support and crisis services for people (males 14 and older and girls who started menses and older) affected by any sexual violence. The program provides a 24 hour crisis intervention hotline, along with a Sexual Assault Response Team (SART). The SART team includes; victim advocacy, SANE nurse, law enforcement advocacy, and criminal justice advocacy. The SART team responds to sexual assault victims 24 hours a day/7 days a week. The advocate provides victims advocacy through the prosecution process. Additionally, SASS provides education and awareness to the community.
Cooperative Parenting Program
The Co-parenting classes provide divorcing parents with the knowledge and tools to raise their children separately in a positive environment. All too many times parents put their children in the middle of their divorce or dispute, the scientific based curriculum, Trans-parenting, defines the harm this behavior has on children of divorcing couples.
