National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse (NRFC)

Fathers Incorporated has been instrumental in its extensive collaboration with the National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse (NRFC). As part of its mission to advance the message of responsible fatherhood, Fathers Incorporated has played a critical role in driving the NRFC's objectives.

Under the effective leadership of CEO Kenneth Braswell, who is also the director of the NRFC, Fathers Incorporated has worked diligently to disseminate resources, develop programming, and facilitate the exchange of research and proven practices that help to enhance the capacity of fathers to engage fully in the lives of their children.

This aligns seamlessly with the NRFC's mission to provide, facilitate, and disseminate current research and proven, evidence-based strategies that will encourage and strengthen fathers and families.

Moynihan Institute for Fatherhood Research and Policy

The Moynihan Institute for Fatherhood Research and Policy (MIFRP) utilizes the historical work of Moynihan as a base to research and introduce policy that will positively impact Black families, with the father as the focal point within the family.

MIFRP devotes specific attention to addressing Health and Wellness, Popular Media Representations, Family Stability, and the Educational Involvement of Black fathers.

Our basic assumption is that there is no fatherless child as all children have a biological father just as they have a biological mother. Fathers and father-figures have the potential to be resources to their children, the mother of their children, and their communities at-large.

Million Fathers March

The Power of Presence: Fathers Engaged in Education

The Million Fathers March is an inspiring national movement aiming to amplify the critical role of fathers and father figures in children's education and development. Launched in 2004 by The Black Star Project and now coordinated by Fathers Incorporated, the event calls on fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other male mentors to escort their children to school on a designated day each year.

It serves as a powerful demonstration of unity and commitment to education, showcasing the collective resolve of fathers across the country to be active participants in their children's learning journey.
