CAMPAINING FOR COMMUNITIES
DFFI is dedicated to promoting effective and positive policies at the local, state and federal levels that support constructive families and individual causes.
Why is this important?
The DFFI team works diligently to help improve community conditions in evolving neighborhoods. The main purpose is to encourage the cooperation of residents and neighborhood organizations, which is critical to the process of empowering residents to gain political clout and to solicit community leaders.

DFFI is primarily focused on ensuring the safety and soundness of local agencies especially those in under-served areas. Frequently communities are faced with administrative policies such as health services, housing, schooling and community reform in both under-served neighborhoods and more affluent areas that in some cases do not reflect the needs of the community. It is extremely important that residents attend agencies and local council meetings to share their concerns. DFFI team has develop work sessions on administrative policymaking and state bill-making that will help communities fight for needed services. Our goal is to help individuals and families to have more input in policies that effect their everyday lives.
Board and Committee Members
One of DFFI's primary focus is board and committee membership. In many US communities, citizens have found that strength and local knowledge of members appointed or elected to boards and government committees have been marginalized in undeserved neighborhoods, and therefore, little attention is paid to community assets and problems. Having local community residents as members of boards or committees is a guarantee that local issues will be discussed and perhaps resolved.
Supporting Corporate Social Impact
DFFI and its other corporate entities believe that donating talent, time and corporate resources is a social responsibility and should be sustainable. Our team has clocked thousands of volunteer hours and have made an impact in areas such as education, safety, volunteerism, housing, and wellness. We along with our partners over the years have focused on community revitalization in low-income neighborhoods that have experienced significant distress. DFFI has always solicited new partners to support each project it undertakes. These partnerships have become long-term investors in US neighborhoods with positive outcomes.
