The Community Mobilization Approach™ (CMA) is a unique, proven process facilitated by NFI that gets your community leaders invested and involved in mobilizing your community around responsible fatherhood.
NFI staff will guide your group through three CMA mobilization phases to facilitate your multi-sector initiative:
A Needs and Assets Assessment
A Leadership Summit on Fatherhood
Anchoring the Initiative with a Community Action Plan
The entire CMA is usually delivered over a period of 6-12 months.
WHO is It For?
The CMA brings together leaders, citizens, and professionals from all sectors of your community who wish to come together with the common goal of mobilizing around responsible fatherhood. NFI has conducted the CMA with agencies at the city, county, and state levels.
Past NFI CMA engagements include: Texas, Indiana, and Ohio; Milwaukee, WI; Sioux Falls, SD; Prince George’s County, MD; Wapello County, IA; and Allegheny County/Pittsburgh, PA.
What is the RESULT?
The formation of your multi-sector collaborative which serves as the basis for your state/county Fatherhood Advisory Council, with buy-in from across sectors.
A strategic plan that mobilizes each sector.
The CMA equips direct–service providers in different sectors with robust plans, services, and programs for fathers that will serve as benchmarks for other direct-service providers in their sector.
