Research, Scholarship and Community Knowledge

We apply research to our work with fathers.  We hold ourselves accountable for the highest standard in services to fathers and families.  We respect and apply knowledge of people we serve.


Excellence and Innovation

We explore new approaches to meeting the fatherhood development needs of the males we work with.



We will strive to be the strong and active voice for fathers in the community to ensure their fair and equitable treatment in society.



We seek diversity in our membership and partcipants and welcome differences in people, ideas, programs and partnership.



We believe families are havens of nuturing, sustenance, unity, social values and guiding tenents for future development of its children.  Fathers, mothers and children are an important part of that family, and contributors to strong and healthy communities regardless of where those family members live.
