In 2006, Mayor Tom Barrett and community leaders gathered more than 1,200 men at a two-day Milwaukee Fatherhood Initiative Conference. Because of the overwhelming community response, the mayor formalized the Milwaukee Fatherhood Initiative (MFI) with seed money from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation and in-kind support from the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee. MFI’s annual Fatherhood Summit is open to the community.
