There are many facets to working with LIFI, including our fatherhood workshops, case management support, employment services and more. But before you can begin your journey toward being a better father, you first need to enroll with LIFI. Here’s how it works:
- Be 18 years or older
- Live on Long Island
- Have a child under the age of 24, or be serving as a father figure for a child under the age of 24
Once it has been determined you’re eligible, a case manager will enter you in our system and perform an assessment designed to better understand the challenges and issues you’re facing.
This will assist LIFI in providing the help — such as employment services, DSS, transportation, NYS ID, etc. — that you need.
Connecting with YOUR CASE MANAGER
Once your assessment is complete, you’ll be officially enrolled in the fatherhood workshop program and be ready to begin your new start.
You’ll be assigned a case manager to assist you throughout your LIFI journey and our facilitators will reach out to you to schedule a time for your 24/7 Dad® orientation.
