Building Stronger Men for the Commonwealth

Because Fatherhood Doesn't Come With Instructions

The Fatherhood Foundation of Virginia is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to building the fundamental element of strong communities – healthy relationships, marriages and active fathers. It takes effort to build a relationship, but the rewards are worth it.

FFVA is for individuals who are committed to bettering their formative relationships and families. We are the trusted resource for skills-based programs and events for relational wellness.

We recognize that healthy relationships and encouraging responsible fatherhood are key elements of a strong community. FFVA has a positive reputation in our community for excellent leadership and research-based training.

For Moms, We Make Stronger Men

Whether you’re a new dad, a father who needs to improve a few aspects of his relationship with his children and their mother or just wanting to ensure you’re heading in the right direction, our foundation is here to make sure your future is bright. We are proud to be a trusted source for men in the Commonwealth for 25 years.

It Takes Two Working Together

Started as a nonprofit to curb the divorce rate in Richmond, we still believe that the most important relationship you can show your children is the one between mom and dad. Although relationships are hard work, if done correctly, are playful, rewarding and a source of joy. We help couples recognize those joys and further their ability to strengthen bonds with those they love.

True Systemic Change Starts Here

We recognize that the strength of our community and the future of our Commonwealth lies in the health of the family, especially the fathers. When our men are better prepared, marriages and families and stronger. Studies tell us that by having fathers active in the life of their families, poverty & crime goes down while emotional wellness & educational success goes up. By understanding the complexity and joys of fatherhood and relationships, we help everyone we serve be more successful, which makes our state a better place to live.
