About National Fatherhood Initiative

Dedicated to giving children a brighter future by connecting fathers and families, National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI) is working hard to strengthen communities like yours across the country.

Mission and Strategy

NFI's mission is to improve the well-being of children by increasing the proportion of children growing up with an involved, responsible, and committed father.

To accomplish our mission, we use what we call our "3-E Strategy":

  • Educating and inspiring all Americans
  • Equipping organizations and fathers in six different sectors of society
  • Engaging all sectors of society around this issue
