At-Risk Fathers Investment Request for Information

Closing Date for Responses: April 1, 2015 by 5:00 p.m. PST


This Request for Information (RFI) is opened to all agencies which provide fatherhood efforts supporting families with children prenatal to age 5 in Los Angeles County.


First 5 LA is seeking information regarding fatherhood efforts in Los Angeles County.  The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to canvass existing fatherhood efforts supporting families with children prenatal to age 5 and identify opportunities to enrich these efforts in L.A. County.  Note that this is not a solicitation for funding but rather a request for information. Information collected through this RFI will be part of a multi-layered process that will help First 5 LA focus and shape future investments to align with our new 2015-2020 Strategic Plan. In particular, information on supporting fathers to complete school, get a job, and become involved parents and partners is sought, especially for fathers on probation and fathers that have been in foster care. Policy and systems change efforts will also be explored so that First 5 LA can achieve broader, more sustainable impact for children prenatal to age 5 and their families.
