Fatherhood.gov Website Debuts
Just in time for Father's Day, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Administration for Children and Families (ACF) announced the June 14 launch of the National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse (NRFC) website. The website offers resources for a broad audience, including Responsible Fatherhood and Healthy Marriage program grantees, fathers and families, community partners, policymakers, and researchers. Visitors to the website can access electronic publications, statistics, media materials, and other resources on the topic of fatherhood and improving the lives of children and families. They can also search the online library's extensive collection and sign up to receive email updates of the site.
The NRFC supports the Federal commitment to advance responsible fatherhood, as it:
- Promotes responsible, caring, and effective parenting
- Enhances the abilities and commitment of unemployed or low-income fathers to provide material support for their families
- Improves fathers' ability to effectively manage family business affairs
- Encourages and supports responsible fatherhood in the context of marriage
