April 15, 2019 - Today Amy Fa'atoafe, Executive Director, and Albert Pooley President of the Native American Fatherhood and Families Association (NAFFA)spoke to us about their organization.
 Their mission is to strengthen families by responsibly involving fathers and mothers in the lives of their children, families and communities to provide happy and safe families. Their vision is to support fathers and mothers in becoming models of healthy parenting everywhere. They explained that Native Americans have the highest suicide rate, high school dropout, and teen pregnancies of any group of people and they have never received any federal funding because they openly state they believe in God. NAFFA works with over 400 tribes across North America including 21 reservations in Arizona. They emphasize the important roles of fathers and mothers in solving many societal problems. NAFFA trains facilitators to reach into communities.
