The National Saving Fatherhood Foundation Inc.

"Helping Fathers and Their Families Stay Together"


Our programs are intended for use by fathers committed to responsible parenting. Individuals seeking our services are subject to screenings, and once enrolled, failure to comply with program expectations may be grounds for an eligibility review.


Current Programs

Private Investigator Taking Photos

Lost and Found Program: We provide the services of private investigators to locate lost children so that they may be reunited with their fathers. Our investigators will only transfer findings to a client's personal lawyer to ensure confidential handling of information and the security of all relevant parties. This program provides responsible fathers and their lawyers with the information that they need to contest situations in which a father's partner or former partner may be illegitimately preventing that father's access to their children.

 
Lawyer Providing Legal Aid
Stand and Fight Program: We recognize that many fathers and families experience unequal treatment in the court system. Unfair technicalities and gaps in laws and regulations can separate otherwise qualified fathers from their families. We provide legal assistance by preparing those fathers to defend their right to fatherhood. Program members receive education in relevant family law, and they have access to document preparation services so that fathers know their rights and process all required forms as is necessary for their particular situations. Additionally, we instruct fathers in proper courtroom etiquette, allowing them to best present themselves as responsible fathers in a formal setting. Cumulatively, all of these elements can play key roles in navigating injustices that occur in the judicial system.
 
Fathers Offering Peer Support
Fatherhood Support Group: We lead online meetings where fathers have the chance to connect with one another. Accessible from anywhere with reliable internet connectivity, these groups foster a safe discussion environment for fathers to share their experiences and learn from one another. Each father can unburden himself of unhealthy emotions in a way that is both productive and can be validated by others who share similar difficulties. By openly exploring these struggles with their peers, fathers are less likely to repress issues that they must confront in order to become model parents. Meeting groups grow together by discussing effective strategies for dealing with their emotions and for approaching problems. Additionally, group activities such as brainstorming help fathers draw on their collective wisdom for their collective benefit. Facilitators lead fathers through exercises in identifying and prioritizing their values and responsibilities. Ultimately, our support group changes the way that participants think about being a father, showing them that fatherhood is an incredible opportunity to nurture an irreplaceable bond with their children.
 
Fatherhood Mentor and Mentee
Build-Up Program: We pair fathers seeking one-on-one support with experienced mentors who are model fathers. Our mentors deliver services that are similar to those of our Fatherhood Support Group, but on a much more personalized scale. We select our mentors from the highest performing and most improved fathers that have graduated from our various programs, making them experts in our fatherhood curriculum. We carefully match program members with individuals who fit both the personalities and the needs of the fathers we serve. Mentors operate as fatherhood coaches and they regularly contact mentees to ensure extra accountability. Additionally, mentors and mentees forge their own trusting relationship so that they can cooperatively work together to create effective, customized strategies for tackling mentees' problems. This hands-on approach often includes direct modeling of parenting skills in a way that can only be demonstrated in individualized instruction. Mentors also keep a running record of their mentees' growth over time, which allows members of this program to track their development in detail.
 
Child Support Agreement
Child Support Payment Program: We assist registered clients who qualify for this program with a portion of their child support payments. In 2016, the United States Census Bureau reported that the average national child support payment cost $430. For many, monthly payments can exceed $2,000. For those already living at or below the poverty line, this cost is unmanageable, and we alleviate part of this significant strain through our payment program. We account for fathers' financial circumstances, required monthly payments, and other factors in our review process, and we pay a portion of clients' monthly fees on their behalf. Ultimately, this relief allows fathers to focus on other fatherhood responsibilities that require them to show up for their children without the distraction of a personal financial crisis. Please see the information below for client registration and access to this program.

Responsible Fathers United
Live Group: We are working to replicate all the benefits of our Fatherhood Support Group in an exciting, in-person Live Group. Our Live Group will bring the advantages of the camaraderie and sense of belonging that only being in the physical presence of one another can deliver. We will practice group activities to refine fatherhood skills such as role play, and we will bring in skilled fathers from the community to share their knowledge with group members. Additionally, we will foster member support outside of our Live Group by connecting local fathers with one another via our groups. Enrolled fathers, fathers that have graduated from our programs, and the fathers that we bring in as fatherhood educators will be able to network with one another, building a strong, local foundation for combatting fatherlessness. We are thrilled at the prospect of launching this program because when fathers unite locally, they can address issues that affect local fathers. A few examples include county, city, or town regulations on child support paperwork and marriage and divorce law, as well as local affairs affecting their children such as school district education policy, low-cost school lunches, and after school activities. The biggest benefit of our Live Group is that many of our meetings will offer supervised opportunities, such as picnics, for fathers to spend time with their children and their families while doing activities that help build the relationships necessary for successful fatherhood. #ComingSoon
 
Doctors Eager to Help

Doc-In Program: As one of our core ambitions in the next year, we are working hard to bring licensed case workers and professional medical staff onto our team as a a part of a huge effort to make sure that fathers have some substantial new resources to utilize in our programs. We hope to provide the ongoing mental health support fathers may need to process issues that prevent them from focusing on successful parenting. Additionally, we endeavor to bring in medical professionals to make sure that our clients' baseline physical health does not prevent them from acting as fathers to their children. If our doctors believe that health issues may prevent effective fatherhood, our team will work with clients to design effective strategies to address any relevant problems and put our clients in a better position to pursue being fathers to their children. Our mental health staff will simultaneously operate in some of our current core programming by leading some Fatherhood Support Groups and teaching particular skills from their background in family therapy or childhood development. Furthermore, we plan to integrate some of our new mental health staff into our hotline operator team so that we can directly respond to fathers in crisis rather than having to refer them for support elsewhere. #ComingSoon
