The goals of the QIC-NRF will include:
- To promote a research-based and outcome-focused approach to inform best practices related to the engagement of nonresident fathers and the paternal family in the public child welfare system
- To determine the impact of father involvement on child safety, permanence, and well-being outcomes
- To facilitate a collaborative information-sharing and problem-solving national network among subgrantees, the Children's Bureau, public child welfare agencies, private service providers, the courts and legal systems, and other stakeholders.
The Children's Bureau funded American Humane Association and its partners the American Bar Association Center on Children and the Law and the National Fatherhood Initiative to create the Quality Improvement Center on Non-Resident Fathers.
Primarily a tool for professionals operating Responsible Fatherhood programs, the NRFC provides access to print and electronic publications, timely information on fatherhood issues, and targeted resources that support OFA-funded Responsible Fatherhood and Healthy Marriage grantees.
