The National Fatherhood Initiative was founded in 1994 to improve the well-being of children by increasing the number of children with involved, responsible and committed fathers. 

Likewise, the goal of the Fatherhood Initiative of Connecticut is to promote positive involvement and interaction of fathers with their children.  The Connecticut initiative, led by the Connecticut Department of Social Services, places an emphasis on children who are eligible for, or formerly eligible for services funded by the temporary assistance for needy families block grant.  In addition, the Fatherhood Initiative of Connecticut seeks to identify services that encourage and enhance responsible and skillful parenting, along with those services that increase the ability of fathers to meet the financial and medical needs of their children including employment and child support enforcement measures.
