National Fatherhood Initiative® | Our Mission

Creating a world in which every child has a 24/7 Dad.℠

National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI) is the nation's leading non-profit organization working to
end father absence. Underlying many of society's most pressing challenges is a lack of
father involvement in their children's lives.

Our Mission

National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI) transforms organizations and communities by
equipping them to intentionally and proactively engage fathers in their children's lives.

Our Vision

National Fatherhood Initiative’s vision is for every child to grow up
with an involved, responsible, and committed father.
