The Fatherhood Initiative was developed to further the welfare reform goal of strengthening families, to enhance child support collections, and to address other needs of children who are growing up without the involvement of natural fathers in their lives. Fatherhood resources have been created in Alabama through funding and technical assistance from the Alabama Department of Human Resources. In August 2002, the Department of Human Resources was instrumental in the formation of the Alabama Fatherhood Initiative (AFI). The AFI is a statewide network of public, private, non-profit and faith-based organizations working to enhance the ability of non-custodial fathers to support their children and to have greater and more constructive involvement in the lives of their children. The mission of the Alabama Fatherhood Initiative is to help non-custodial to achieve these goals by providing counseling, education, training and employment opportunities. The AFI recognizes and promotes the importance of fathers in the upbringing of children.

Extractions: Education in Selected Communities With support from the National Science Foundation, the QEM Network piloted the NEW PALS initiative in ten communities from September 1999-April 2003. NEW PALS built on both current and past QEM programs in selected sites. Seven of these sites are public housing communities located near college campuses on which community service centers (CSCs) have been established to link the resources of the institutions to the educational needs of the residents, while the remaining three communities are part of a General Electric (GE) Fund-QEM partnership. Cleveland, Ohio; and Florence, South Carolina. Through NEW PALS, a core group of parents at each site has been trained and offered support to encourage them to become: stronger participants in the provision of quality science, mathematics, and technology (SMT) education for their children; and more informed advocates of quality education in their local schools. Efforts focused on (1) the design and implementation of a community-based institute at each location that offered parents a range of educational, training, and leadership development activities-tied to the educational level of their children; and (2) the creation and maintenance of an information and support network of educational resources available to parents electronically, via QEM's Website, an 800 number, and in printed form. An abbreviated version of this project is taking place in four public housing communities in Jacksonville, Florida, with support from the Doval County Public Schools.
