Mission Statement

The vision of the Resource Center for Fathers & Families has been to work toward communities in which children have both fathers and mothers active in their lives as parents and as partners in parenting. RCFF's mission is to provide resources that will help men become better parents and better parenting partners regardless of marital status, to prevent violence, and to provide the model that all children deserve.

RCFF's primary focus is on helping men who are economically disadvantaged to develop more positive and supportive relationships with their children who are frequently at high risk. The ultimate goal of the Resource Center for Fathers & Families is to help the entire family - including extended family members and friends - so that children have strong role models to support their positive development and increase the likelihood they will succeed in life as they grow into adulthood.

Description

RCFF fills an important niche by providing legal, advocacy, counseling, individual and group support, parenting education, anger management/domestic violence prevention programs, and referral services that help fathers of low-income gain knowledge, skills, support, and motivation to become and remain positively involved in their children's lives. RCFF is building a strong reputation in the Twin Cities as the place that fathers can turn for help, with the Fathers Crisis Line playing a growing role as a point of connection for fathers and families with urgent needs. RCFF is unique in providing services that strengthen families experiencing troubled relationships and conflict, often including child abuse and neglect , by supporting the role of fathers with their children and within their families.
