Biblical Principles Are The Foundation Of All Programs
This is an exciting time. We believe we have found the land God has led us to for this ministry to ‘call home.’
We are looking to Make A Difference in Helping Others To Change their Thoughts & Behaviors. We have provided treatment and anger management classes for Washington state court ordered detainees, who were ordered to attend our unique program, and our work was very successful. Now that I am back in Texas (my home state), we have found land where TAILOR-MADE RESULTS, INC can become grounded in Texas. This men’s ministry is focused on reestablishing the family, so we are inviting men that will help these young men learn how to walk in their new Christian walk. They need our love, our patience to teach them, our help in learning ‘how’ does a man act, speak, dress, behave, and how he is to communicate in love and with respect to what the other person has to say, specifically in addressing his spouse and children.
We are inviting men to come join us who would be interested in being a loving, patient, godly man, who will be a surrogate father, and help a young man, new in his Christian walk, learn how to be the spiritual leader and loving husband and father as he returns to the family and the community, after incarceration,.
This is a God given vision, and has become my passion. I am including some statistics to help you understand my passion. The clinical setting is not the answer. A country retreat is more conducive for the work ahead of us. Come Join Us…..

Father Factor in Incarceration
After controlling for income, youths in fatherless homes still had significantly higher odds of incarceration that those in mother-father families. Youths who never had a father in the household experienced the highest odds. A 2002 Dept. of Justice survey, of 7,000 inmates, revealed that 39% of jail inmates lived in mother-only households. In 2002, 46% of jail inmates had a previously incarcerated family member. 1/5 experienced a father in prison or jail.
Father Factor in Crime
A study of 109 juvenile offenders indicated that family structure significantly predicts delinquency. Adolescents, particularly boys, in single-parent families, were at higher risk of status, property and person delinquencies. Moreover, students attending schools with a high proportion of children of single parents are also at risk. A study of 13,986 women in prison showed that more than half grew up without their father. 42% grew up in a single-mother household and 16% lived with neither parent.
Father Factor in Child Abuse
Compared to living with both parents, living in a single-parent home doubles the risk that a child will suffer physical, emotional, or educational neglect. The overall rate of child abuse and neglect in single-parent households is 27.3 children per 1,000, whereas the rate of overall maltreatment in two-parent households is 15.5 per 1,000.
Daughters of single parents without a Father involved are 53% more likely to marry as teenagers, 711% more likely to have children as teenagers, 164% more likely to have a pre-marital birth and 92% more likely to get divorced themselves.
