Dear Black Fathers is inspiring and empowering fathers to be self-aware, self-reliant, and self-actualized. We center our work around fathers, but we know it takes a village, and our hearts and minds are always centered on supporting entire families.
We organize activities and events that promote family and community togetherness, mental and physical wellness, healthy lifestyle habits, and foster meaningful dialogue and connections between fathers and their families.
Dear Black Fathers is helping to usher in a new era and more inclusive 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 father.
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.
