Germantown, MD (PRWEB) May 07, 2014
National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI), the nation’s leading provider of fatherhood skill-building materials and training, has been awarded a contract with the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA).
NFI’s field-tested, research- and evidence-based fatherhood resources are now available to federal agencies via the Mission Oriented Business Integrated Services (MOBIS) Schedule 874, where the resources will be offered at an 8% discount.
MOBIS Schedule Special Item Number (SIN) 874-4 will offer NFI-led training on the organization’s flagship fatherhood curricula, such as 24/7 Dad® and InsideOut Dad®. MOBIS Schedule SIN 874-9 will offer NFI’s skill-building resources for dads, such as curricula kits, fathering handbooks, brochures, pocket guides, and tip cards.
Purchases of NFI’s resources from the GSA schedule can be made on the GSA Advantage website or via NFI’s GSA contract number, GS-02F-083BA.
Availability on the GSA schedule will make NFI’s resources easier to procure for agencies such as the Department of Defense, enhancing NFI’s position as the leading provider of fatherhood-specific resources to the U.S. Military. Additionally, NFI’s InsideOut Dad® program, the only evidence-based program designed specifically for working with incarcerated fathers, will be available to the Bureau of Prisons and various Department of Justice agencies seeking resources for working with incarcerated and re-entering fathers.
Finally, agencies seeking to serve families, such as those within the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Labor, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development, will have access to NFI’s general fathering education programs such as 24/7 Dad® and Doctor Dad®.
“The GSA schedule will give NFI the opportunity to better serve our federal agency customers,” said Christopher Brown, president of NFI. “This better service will in turn help these customers better serve their constituents by equipping even more fathers with the tools they need to be the kinds of dads their children need them to be.”
As the premier fatherhood renewal organization in the country, National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI), founded in 1994, works in every sector and at every level of society to “create a world where every child has a 247 Dad℠.” NFI is the #1 provider of fatherhood resources in the nation. Since 2004, through FatherSOURCE™, its national resource center, NFI has distributed over 6.6 million resources, and has trained over 13,500 practitioners from over 6,500 organizations on how to deliver programs to dads. NFI is also the most quoted authority on fatherhood in America. Since 2009, NFI has been mentioned in over 3,600 news stories, and makes regular appearances in national media to discuss the importance of involved, responsible, and committed fatherhood.
