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
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.
National Fatherhood Initiative® is a 501c3 non-profit organization founded in 1994 to reverse the nation's trend toward father absence.
Our vision is that all communities and human service organizations are proactively father-inclusive so that every child has an involved, responsible, and committed father in their lives.
