The Native American Fatherhood & Families association  Outpatient program seeks to rehabilitate those of whom are "unfamiliar with a good life."  -Albert Pooley

This rehabilitation program's intention is to help adults and youth realize their own self worth & work towards becoming a valuable member to society - and most importantly their family.

The family is the most important unit - not only in society, but in the culture of Native Americans.  As Mothers and Fathers learn how precious they are, they will rise to the role of loving each other and their children.
