Easy-to-Use Format
NFI has served organizations working with fathers for two decades, and now, we have made our fatherhood advice available in a downloadable PDF file. The structure of each guide allows an organization to customize a discussion with dads in any way you want; or lets any dad use the resource at his own pace! Some ideas for using the guides:

  • Share the guides with as many dads as you like.
  • Print the PDF and give to the dads you serve, review it with them 1-on-1 or in a small group, or email it to them to read on a computer, tablet, or smart phone on their own time. You can even give them to moms to share with dads!
  • This guide can reinforce (but not replace) the 24/7 Dad® program or any other fatherhood program you currently provide.
  • Give away copies to the dads you serve so they have our skill-building resources.
