Germantown, MD, October 15, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- National Fatherhood Initiative® (NFI) congratulates the Milwaukee Fatherhood Initiative (MFI) for 10 years of enriching fathers and families.
According to MFI, the initiative “has reduced over $10 million in child support interest debt to help fathers better meet the financial needs of their children. Through MFI’s driver’s license program, thousands of fathers have restored their driving privileges and improved their employability.”
NFI is proud to have played a major role in helping to launch the initiative. MFI credits NFI’s Community Mobilization Approach™ (CMA) as the framework that helped get their initiative off the ground.
NFI president Christopher A. Brown says of the 10-year anniversary:
“We celebrate with the fathers and families of Milwaukee as the Milwaukee Fatherhood Initiative marks its 10th year of enriching families through creating more effective fathers. We are happy to have helped get this great initiative started 10 years ago and are excited about the future and seeing even more Milwaukee fathers get the help they need related to education, employment, job training, child support, and most importantly, the fatherhood skills they need to connect to their families.”
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett’s Fatherhood Summit will be held Friday, October 16 and Saturday, October 17. NFI encourages Milwaukee families to attend the free, public event and celebrate the great work of various programs, agencies, businesses, and individuals to build stronger families through fathers.
