Welcome to ProFathering™

by National Fatherhood Initiative®!

Father involvement is our passion. A father's presence makes a positive difference in the lives of children, mothers, families, and communities. Children with involved fathers are at lower risk for a host of poor childhood outcomes, including:

  • Neglect and abuse
  • Substance abuse 
  • Teen pregnancy
  • Incarceration as juveniles
  • Suicide

Every family and community benefits from increased father involvement. At National Fatherhood Initiative®, we’re changing lives one organization, one family, and one father at a time. That’s why we created ProFathering™—to equip all dads and father figures with the knowledge and skills they need to be the best dads they can be.
