National Fatherhood Initiative

National Fatherhood Initiative Nonprofit. Our nation's social services primarily focus on parenting help for moms. We want to see dads included with father specific programs & resources.

We publish fatherhood curriculum and train organizations to do just that. An involved, responsible, and committed father is one of the most important keys to a child's well-being. We work to help more children have 24/7 Dads™ through 1) Educating society on the important role dads play, 2) Equipping organizations with resources and training to help them serve fathers, and 3) Engaging in partnerships across all sectors to promote responsible fatherhood.

2021 Fathers of the Year

Congrats to NFI partner Spokane Fatherhood Initiative - SPOFI Fathers of the Year!

“We’re extremely proud of our Fathers of the Year,” said SpoFI President Ron Hauenstein. “They both exemplify the values we teach, especially commitment. They chose to live up to their responsibilities as fathers and have worked very hard to become better dads. To do this they had to overcome very challenging circumstances in their lives. We are honored to celebrate their achievements.” Read about the dads here: https://bit.ly/3jChnaq

SpoFI’s Board of Directors made nominations from a pool of men who have graduated from the 24-7 Dad fatherhood classes. An independent committee made the final selections, which were announced Father’s Day weekend.

n this 7 minute video is explained the problems of men in modern society and the Red Pill phylosophy. The video that feminism dont want you to see. Highly recommendable.
"What happens to a little girl who grows up without a father? Can she ever feel truly loved and fully alive? Does she ever heal—or is she doomed to live a wounded, fragmented life and to pass her wounds down to her own children? Fatherlessness afflicts nearly half the households in America, and it has reached epidemic proportions in the African-American community, with especially devastating consequences for black women. In this powerful, searingly intimate book, accomplished journalist, poet, and fiction writer Jonetta Rose Barras breaks the code of silence and gives voice to the experiences of America’s fatherless women—starting with herself. "We are legions—a choir of wounded—listen to the dirge we sing," writes Barras of the millions of black women like her who lost, either through abandonment, rejection, poverty, or death, the men who gave them life. A father is the first man in a girl’s life—the first man to look in her eyes, protect her, care for her, love her unconditionally. Fathers fashion their daughters as expertly and as powerfully as they do their sons. When a girl loses this man, she grows up with an ache that nothing else can soothe. Psychologists have found that fatherless daughters are far more likely to suffer from debilitating rage, depression, abuse, and addictions; they tend to seek "sexual healing" through promiscuity or anti-intimate behavior and end up fearing or despising the men whose love they crave. Barras knows from personal experience the traps and the fury of being a black fatherless daughter, and she makes her own life story the heart and soul of her book, alternating chapters of spellbinding memoir with the stories she has gathered from women all over the country. Passionate and shockingly frank, Whatever Happened to Daddy’s Little Girl is the first book to explore the plight of America’s fatherless daughters from the unique perspective of the African-American community. Like Hope Edelman’s New York Times bestseller Motherless Daughters, this brilliant volume gives all fatherless daughters the knowledge that they are not alone and the courage to overcome the hidden pain they have suffered for so long."

Hi, I am a father that is dealing with my kids being kept from me and my friend told me to reach out to this group for possible assist and/or knowledge. thanks in advance
Just spent the past 2 hours trying to console my 8 year old son on his Fathers consistent absence in his life!!!😭 The things he said through tears were heartbreaking. Does anyone have age appropriate suggestions to let him know that he’s not alone and/or to gain a better perspective on understanding that the reason his father has ‘chosen’ to be absent has nothing to do with anything he did?
Help
Help, I have a coworker who needs assistant. He lives in Bucks County PA and he has been back and forth all the Doylestown and the surrounding counties trying to get help. His sons mother has been hospitalized for self hurting and is making ominous threats towards their son.He cannot get anyone to serve her papers and can't get a court date until 8.13.19. He has spent the last week and half trying to get help to get custody of his son and a protection of abuse served on behalf of son to his ex. and all he is doing is hitting brick walls. If you know who he can contact please respond.
I would like to share my story with this page. I hope that others can provide me support and guidance. https://www.facebook.com/bringtuckersboyshome/
