Free NRFC Technical Assistance Webinar

The Office of Family Assistance, through the National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse (NRFC), is providing this technical assistance webinar for all responsible fatherhood practitioners, including current OFA grantees, and other interested stakeholders.

 According to research studies noted in the NRFC’s Responsible Fatherhood Toolkit, although the range and impact of responsible fatherhood programs has grown significantly in the U.S. over the last 30 years, programs have often “struggled to sustain their services through the ups and downs of funding cycles” and “those with the most longevity have had the benefit of dynamic and involved leadership, support from the local funding community, an effective program model, and an ability to form and maintain strong community partnerships.”

 Please join us for a conversation with a funder and two seasoned practitioners as we explore ways to adapt to changing circumstances in order to “keep the doors open.”
