Fathers in Action uses the National Fatherhood Initiative’s 24:7 Dad curriculum which is based on some of the following key principles:

  • The ability to parent children successfully or unsuccessfully is largely a learned set of behaviors.

  • Fathers and mothers parent differently.

  • There are universal aspects of fathering and parenting that exist in all cultures.

  • Any father, given the chance, can learn to be a great dad and parent.

FIA supports fathers by equipping them with the skills they need to increase in the habits of good fathering/father involvement; increase in pro-fathering knowledge, skills and attitudes, and increase healthy interaction with the mother of their children.


  • Engaging, evidenced-based curriculum that is adapted to meet each father’s need

  • One-on-one mentoring with GOL’s fatherhood coach

  • Connection and support from other fathers during bi-monthly Group Connections for Dads

  • Referral to community resources

  • Live in Montgomery County, Alabama

  • FIA is offered at no cost
