My Father’s House, Inc. was organized by representatives of multiple social service agencies in Milwaukee county following a call and forum by then Governor of Wisconsin, Tommy Thompson in May of 1999.  The governor announced the state would be organizing a State of Wisconsin Fatherhood Initiative.

All attendees were charged with returning to their local communities and organizing community organizations, social service providers, faith based organizations, the business community, and all other interested parties to educate, and advocate to get fathers, especially non-custodial fathers to be more involved in the upbringing of their children and create initiatives, and advocate to improve efforts in Family Preservation.
