Why It Matters

Fathers change futures.

Strong fathers mean strong families. 

Decades of national research along with data we’ve collected at the state and local level show fathers have the power to create a brighter future for their children—and for all of us. Fathers shape lives. Their presence is essential. Their love is irreplaceable. Our fatherhood programs give men the tools they need to take on the role of responsible fatherhood – capable and committed to providing the attention children need to prosper.
