Brochures to Start a Resource Library

With over 20 years of experience working with community, corrections, military organizations, and government agencies, National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI) is the nation’s leading and most experienced provider of evidence-based resources and programming designed specifically for incarcerated fathers

In addition to its research and evidence based reentry program InsideOut Dad and a variety of related resources, NFI provides incarcerated fathers with a number of easy to use and affordable resources that can help them to connect with their children and family while in custody and after release.

For correctional facilities and community organizations that would like to establish a resource library of materials to help offenders remain connected to their children and families throughout their time in prison, National Fatherhood Initiative publications could be a good starting point.

NFI recommends these research-based information brochures specifically for parents in prison and their families:
• Staying Involved with Your Children While Incarcerated
• 14 Things Dads In Prison Should Do Before Or Right After Release
• 20 Ways to Connect With Your Children and Family After Release
• The Importance of an Involved Father
• How to Better Manage Money (with Spending Plan Worksheet)

In addition, these other brochures may be of value to incarcerated fathers, as well as fathers in general:
• 7 Benefits of Marriage for Men
• 10 Ways to be a Better Dad
• 12 Questions to Ask Before Becoming a Father
• 12 Ways to Balance Work & Family
• 12 Ways to Create a Peaceful Home
• A Checklist for Keeping Your Child Safe from Newborn to Toddler
• How Dad Can Be a Good Co-Parent
• How to Help Your Child Do Well in School
• How to Keep Your Child Healthy
• So You're A New Father (or Are About to Become One)

Most of the brochures come in packs of 50 at a cost of $18.99/pack. Most are also available in both English and Spanish. The catalog giving descriptions of the National Fatherhood Initiative’s collection of brochures is available at
