The Benefits for Agencies

FOF complements, expands and enhances the quality of existing prevention services at agencies by providing a brief, evidence-based program that does not require a great amount of resources or effort. It also supports agencies' missions to decrease STD and HIV rates and close gaps in needed services for young African American men. FOF enhances the image of agencies as attractive sites for funders to invest in and as creative, innovative, and proactive sites in addressing HIV/STDs.

More broadly, FOF impacts the norms and culture of the community regarding the way people think about sex (i.e., move towards a “sex-positive” model whereby condom use and lubricants are eroticized).
