We welcome all individuals and agencies both Native and Non-Native
us in our quest
to bring prosperity and stability
to the institution of family.
At the heart of Native American culture is FAMILY
There is no work more important than Fatherhood & Motherhood
Our approach is based on a culturally rich model that inspires and motivates fathers and mothers to devote their best efforts in teaching and raising children to develop their potential and the attributes needed for success in life. NAFFA is currently working with 90+ tribes across this great country of ours to change lives and communities. NAFFA believes that fathers, in partnership with mothers must take the lead in making the necessary adjustments to head in a new direction with correct information based on true and proven principles. Parents must encourage their children to learn about their forefathers and heritage. When we learn about our ancestors, what they stood for, what they valued and what was important to them, we realize that we have much in common.
To honor the past we must improve upon the present.
Native American Fatherhood & Families Association takes the position that fathers are:
- The solution to addressing the problems
- The greatest untapped resources
- Fathers must take the lead in keeping families together
NAFFA defines the purpose of life as "To Have a Happy & Safe Family"
