After several weeks of dedication, 14 incarcerated people graduated the Malachi Dads program at High Desert State Prison (HDSP).
This spiritual program helps restore and equip incarcerated men and women, expanding their parental nurturing skills.
A goal of the Malachi Dads program is to assist in breaking generational cycles of incarceration.
Attending the graduation ceremony were the participants, incarcerated facilitators, volunteers and HDSP staff.
Several incarcerated participants spoke on the positive effects the program has had on them over the last few months. Volunteer staff spoke of how proud they are of the participation and growth seen by the HDSP Malachi Dads graduates.
