Changing the way America cares for children and families by providing and promoting a continuum of care that strengthens body, mind and spirit.


The Center for Successful Fathering Inc.:  1-800-537-0853

The Center for Successful Fathering was founded in 1995 by Dr. Ron Klinger as a response to the growing number of children who were growing up without a father in their lives. Children need a balance of mothers and fathers in their lives. In 1960, over 80% of our nation’s children went to sleep in a home where both the biological mother and father were present. Today that number has dropped to less than 25%.


National Center for Fathering:  1-800-593-DADS

The mission of the National Center for Fathering is to improve the well-being of children by inspiring and equipping men to be more effectively involved in the lives of children. In response to a dramatic trend towards fatherlessness in America, the Center was founded in 1990 by Dr. Ken Canfield to conduct research on fathers and fathering, and to develop practical resources to prepare dads for nearly every fathering situation.
