Leadership Statement:

The most disturbing social trend of our times is the dramatic increase in fatherlessness in the United States.In 1960, less than 8 million children were living in families where the father was absent. Today the number of children living in father-absent homes stands at over 24 million. That means that tonight, one out of every three children in America will go to sleep in a home in which their father does not live. Children who grow up in father-absent homes are significantly more likely to do poorly on almost every measure of child well-being. For example: -- Almost 75 percent of American children who grow up in single-parent homes will experience poverty before they turn 11-years-old, compared to only 20 percent for families where there are two parents. -- Violent criminals are overwhelmingly males who grew up without fathers, including 72 percent of adolescent murderers and 70 percent of long-term prison inmates. -- Children living in father-absent homes are also more likely to be suspended from school, or to drop out; be treated for an emotional or behavioral problem; commit suicide as adolescents; and be victims of child abuse or neglect. National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI), supported by its members, is working to change this. We serve as a catalyst for engaging America in a public and forthright discussion about the necessity of reversing these trends. NFI equips fathers and father-serving organizations with high-quality fatherhood skill-building materials and training, encourages and supports family and father-friendly policies, and develops national public education campaigns to highlight the importance of fathers in the lives of their children. I invite you to support NFI. Ensuring that more children grow up with involved and committed fathers is the best way to ensure that every child has what should be their birthright: a happy and secure childhood. Christopher A. Brown, President, National Fatherhood Initiative

Program Description:

InsideOut Dad® is the nation's only evidence-based fatherhood program designed specifically for incarcerated fathers. Standardized programming for 24 states and New York City, InsideOut Dad® helps reduce recidivism rates by reconnecting incarcerated fathers to their families, providing the motivation to get out and stay out. Popular among both inmates and ex-offenders, InsideOut Dad® has been proven to increase family contact and improve inmate knowledge and attitudes. Hundreds of state and federal facilities, pre-release programs, community organizations, and more are using this life-changing reentry program.

Program Long-Term Success:

Qualified as an evidence-based program by Rutgers University study. Used in over 400 prisons across the country. Standardized by DOCs in 25 states. Over 12,000 fathering handbooks distributed in the last 16 months alone (since release of second edition).

Program Description:

24/7 Dad® is the most comprehensive fatherhood program available with innovative tools, strategies, and exercises for fathers of all races, religions, cultures, and backgrounds! Developed by fathering and parenting experts, it focuses on the characteristics men need to be good fathers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Second Edition Updates.

Program Long-Term Success:

An independent third-party evaluation conducted by the Hyra Consulting found statistically significant changes in fathering attitudes and knowledge among fathers served by the Puerto Rican Family Institute (PRFI) who participated in the 24/7 Dad® program. This study represents the most comprehensive evaluation of the program to date as it involved measuring the impact of the program on 785 participants. Of particular note is that the majority of the participants were Hispanic, a group underrepresented in other evaluations of the program. The study found significant changes across even more attitudes and knowledge variables than previous studies of the program, thus underscoring the effectiveness of the program generally and across racial and ethnic groups.

Program Description:

Overview Over the years, National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI) has been asked, "What do you have for Mothers?" In response, we surveyed our customers and partners regarding the concept of a fatherhood organization creating resource for mothers. With overwhelming support for creating these resources, we proceeded to create a program designed specifically for mothers, to help them improve the relationships they have with fathers, for the benefit of their children. Data shows that one in three children in the U.S. grows up in a home without his or her biological father, and the lack of father involvement increases the risk that children will suffer from a range of social, emotional, and physical ills. Unfortunately, many times it's the mothers' gatekeeping behavior that can prevent or reduce fathers' access to their children - when fathers' involvement in their children's lives would actually benefit their children. In addition, mothers can lack the self-awareness and communications skills they need to improve their relationships with the fathers of their children. What's Included Understanding Dad™ includes 8 two-hour sessions that can be implemented in a group setting, or a one-on-one home based program. Each Complete Program Kit includes: 1 Understanding Dad™ Facilitator's Manual 10 Mother's Handbooks for use during the program and that the moms can keep CD-ROM with an evaluation tool, marketing resources, video content for some sessions, and more! DVD with video content for some sessions Topics Understanding Dad™ focuses on the goal of accomplishing communication and awareness objectives that are vital to improving the relationships between mothers and fathers.

Program Short-Term Success:

A pilot program evaluation conducted by Jay Fagan, Ph.D., Professor and Mollie Cherson, M.A., Research Assistant, Temple University, School of Social Work evaluated the effects of mothers’ participation in an eight week intervention program on mothers’ relationship awareness, knowledge of healthy coparenting relationships, and relationship self-efficacy. Thirty-four mothers were recruited from four sites to participate in a study that used a pretest/post-test one-group design. Over the course of this eight week program, mothers demonstrated moderate to large gains in each of the outcome measures, after controlling for mothers’ educational level. Moreover, there was one significant within-subjects interaction effect for time & location. That is, mothers made significantly greater gains in pro-relationship knowledge in one of the intervention sites. Implications for future research are discussed.
