Thriving Dads are Good for Business


As a business owner who supports SpoFI with extreme gratitude, I realize the connection between healthy father-child relationship and a healthy work ethic. I am living proof that when fatherhood is prioritized in the home and community, the result is lasting employees, and safer places to work.

Spokane Fatherhood Initiative’s training programs help fathers adopt the tools, skills and behavioral changes they need to become a better parent, spouse/partner and employee:

  • More committed to their family’s economic needs = more reliable, less absent employee.
  • Fewer problems at home = more focused at work.
  • Healthier, with less stress and anxiety = less PTO taken.
  • More dedication to their families = increased willingness to improve their skills and education, making them more valuable employees.
  • SpoFI programs often connect dads to new, positive social networks and supports, giving them resources in times of need.

All of these things add up to well rounded, more stable, dependable and long-lasting employees.

I support SpoFI because committed dads are more reliable and more responsible employees. They are more dedicated to their work because they are dedicated to the task of providing for their families.
