Program Mission

The mission of the Suffolk County Fatherhood Initiative (SCFI) program is to empower men to foster responsible fatherhood by providing evidence-based, skill-building workshops/groups, education, case management, and coaching on healthy relationships, responsible parenting, and economic stability.

This program helps fathers improve their parenting abilities, confidence, and relationships (especially personal ones) so they may connect with their partners and children more meaningfully. The goal is to help fathers recognize their strengths and overcome obstacles that can prevent them from being the most effective and nurturing parent possible.
