About Milwaukee Fatherhood Initiative

The Milwaukee Fatherhood Initiative (MFI) was launched in 2005 with the support of many business, faith-based, philanthropic and other community partners.



The Milwaukee Fatherhood Initiative is a collaborative partnership dedicated to promoting the positive involvement of both parents in the lives of their children.



  • Human dignity and respect
  • Equity and inclusion
  • Advocacy and empowerment
  • Commitment, integrity and trust



  • Increased engagement between fathers and their children and families
  • Increased access to employment opportunities and quality of life services
  • Enhanced skills in problem solving and emotional well being


To date the MFI has connected more than 12,000 Milwaukee men to resources to help them better meet the social, emotional and financial needs of their children and families. MFI services include: parenting, child support interest debt relief, driver’s license recovery, employment, education, health, and more. Over 95% of program participants are African American and other males on color. The Milwaukee Fatherhood Summit is the largest annual gathering of men in the state.



MFI staff members are available daily to assess and address individual concerns of fathers while incorporating father focused solutions based on an adaptable plan and coordinated resources from reputable partnerships.
