What We Do

Working together to strengthen families.

The Long Island Fatherhood Initiative (LIFI) was created 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.

We help fathers improve their parenting abilities, confidence, and relationships (especially personal ones) so they can connect with their partners and children more meaningfully.

Our goal is to help fathers recognize their strengths and overcome obstacles that can prevent them from being the most effective and nurturing parent possible.

Like many dads, Samuel Randall was struggling without much hope of turning it around. Until he found LIFI and got his family life back on track. See how our free services can help you too.
