The Start of a New Chapter

After teaching fathers and families for 21 years it is time for Native American Fatherhood and Families Association (NAFFA) to take their message to the world.  NAFFA will accomplish this with the creation of a sister organization, the International Association of Families (IAF). IAF’s mission statement is the same as NAFFA’s:

To strengthen, keep and reunite families by responsibly involving fathers and mothers in the lives of their children, families and communities.

Why are we spreading NAFFA’s mission?

First and foremost: the family is under attack all over the world.

Second: the need to support fathers worldwide is important. Why?


1.      Fathers are the solution to addressing the problems within the family.

2.      Fathers are the greatest untapped resource.

3.      Fathers must take the lead in keeping families together.

IAF’s action plan is to search and find communities from every walk of life in all countries who are in need of a fatherhood program. We want to meet with international communities to introduce Fatherhood is Sacred® Motherhood is Sacred®

Our plan will be to adjust all of NAFFA’s curriculum for every culture and translate into many languages.

The great impact these programs will have on worldwide communities launched by the IAF cannot be overstated. By focusing on the deep sacredness of fatherhood and motherhood, these programs are poised to transform change on a global scale.

Come along for the ride.
