Engage Fathers in Home Visiting

Increase Father Engagement in Home Visiting Programs

Home visiting programs offer a variety of family-focused services to expectant parents and families with new babies and young children. However, many home visitation programs have never been educated and equipped on how to effectively integrate fathers into their programming. This leaves a large gap in services, reduces a child’s chance of having a lasting relationship with his or her father, and misses an opportunity to build stronger families.

National Fatherhood Initiative has helped many home visitation programs at the state and local level integrate fatherhood programs into their efforts. Our field-tested, research-based resources on child development and our in-depth curricula help home visitation programs add a meaningful fatherhood component, optimizing the outcomes for infants and toddlers receiving these services.

Solution: Father-Readiness Assessment and Planning™ Service

NFI can help your agency (and partners) assess your father-friendliness, then create and implement a comprehensive, targeted plan to increase the readiness of an organization and its staff to engage fathers.

We will:

  • Conduct Father Friendly Check-Up™ (FFCU) workshops at the state, regional, or local levels.
  • Work with your agency and/or partners to develop action plans using the latest online technology, allowing you and your partners to process, track, and analyze assessment results quickly and easily.

Pricing: $75 to $110 per hour billable rate depending on NFI staff-level involved
