The following resources help organizations across the United States operate programs that support fathers.

National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse (NRFC)

The NRFC is an Office of Family Assistance-funded resource available for anyone currently serving or interested in supporting fathers and families.

The NRFC provides resources to support fatherhood professionals with topics that include:

  • NRFC Webinars—recordings of webinars discussing programmatic topics, including working with specific populations, evaluation support, and program implementation tools

The NRFC also supplies resources that organizations can provide fathers to help them get involved in their child's life, find resources, become a mentor in their community, and more. Find out more on the NRFC For Dads page.
