"The hardest part . . . when you're gone for six months, your family grows without you . . . you come home to strangers. And then after you get home, if there aren't resources it makes it that much harder"

US Navy Chief Quartermaster John Lehnen.

Thank you military families for all you do for us. I do not take this country's freedom for granted!

Help NFI equip military dads


Approximately 1.8 million children and families of military dads are affected by the unique stress of military life, particularly during deployment. Help us support them!

If you can help NFI achieve its target, together we can provide a complete Fatherhood Resource Center for a military base in need!

The dads of military kids will benefit from National Fatherhood Initiative's unique educational materials for dads - to help them stay involved with their kids, and be there for them, even while deployed. 

Unfortunately, research shows that the kids of military dads can experience similar unfortunate outcomes as children in father-absent homes - such as doing poorly in school, emotional/social issues, maltreatment, and more. 

Your support means a military child gets the dad they need to be prosperous and successful.
