Fatherhood Matters

Research suggests that presence of father figure directly impacts the lives of their children. Children who spend quality time with their fathers are:

    • more likely to have positive social behavior72%
    • more likely to enter college66%
    • less likely to be incarcerated80%
    • more likely to have successful relationships75%

Community and Family Focus

Research shows that children with involved, loving fathers are significantly more likely to do well in school, have healthy self-esteem, and exhibit positive social behaviors compared to children with uninvolved fathers. In addition, committed, responsible fathering during childhood has been shown to contribute to children’s math and verbal skills, curiosity, and emotional security.

Fathers Incorporated works actively and diligently to involve fathers in the lives of their children through a variety of programs, activities, training, technical assistance, and cause marketing media campaigns.
