The Issue

Millions of fathers are separated from their families for one reason or another.

Millions of fathers are living with relational discord, separated from their families for one reason or another. WeReconcile exists to provide a path for fathers and adult children to reconcile. We provide counseling and companionship through cohorts to provide hope in order to bring about reconciliation. We believe it is never too late for fathers to reconcile with their adult children. The possibility of restored relationships is what we work towards. Reconciling families is our goal, generational impact is our mission.

The Process

Application, Selection and Onboarding

Fathers apply and invite their children to be a part of the program. We determine if the adult child and father are appropriately suited for the program.

MODULE 01

Reimagine

The healing journey begins with participants identifying family history and systems, trauma, triggers, and assessing barriers for their relationship. Participants begin seeing a therapist regularly and individually in this module.

MODULE 02

Reconcile

In this module, participants begin to develop emotional awareness, process the possibility of a relationship and set expectations. Participants begin journaling and writing letters. This module ends with a four day retreat with counselors and participants doing intense work aimed at reconciliation.

MODULE 03

Renew

Participants will gain skills in conflict management, communicating thoughts and feelings toward one another and developing healthy boundaries in the relationship. They will be given tools to rebuild and/or reestablish a relationship, determine future norms and build trust. It is in this module that participants begin seeing a therapist together.

MODULE 04

Redefine

Participants will define a path forward and set expectations for engagement in the new relationship. It is in this module that participants are given resources to continue to work on the relationship. A post assessment is administered and an invitation onto a new path is offered.
