Dear Black Fathers is inspiring and empowering fathers to be self-aware, self-reliant, and self-accountable. We center our work around fathers, but we know it takes a village, and our hearts and minds are centered on supporting entire families.
We organize activities that promote family togetherness, mental and physical wellness, healthy lifestyle habits, and meaningful dialogue and connections between fathers and their families.
Dear Black Fathers is helping to usher in a new era and more authentic narrative of fatherhood. Fathers should not be limited to a short list of parental roles and expectations that create barriers to experiencing all the joys and greatness that comes with being a parent.
In essence, Black fathers can and do contribute to their children’s health and well-being by maintaining a healthy relationship with the Mother; providing emotional and financial support, appropriate monitoring and discipline; and most importantly by maintaining a permanent and loving presence in their lives.
