The DRC is committed to providing education, resources and advocacy for dads who are separated or divorced and are determined to uphold their sacred responsibility as fathers.
Our approach is to work constructively (including within the civil legal, government and human services systems) to enable and help fathers play the role that their children need. We are dedicated to helping fathers succeed.
At our heart we are a children’s advocacy organization and our aim is to ensure that each child has the appropriate involvement and contributions from both of their parents.
Studies show that children develop best when their fathers actively participate in their lives. This involvement includes quality time, guidance, being a positive role model, effectively co-parenting and helping with the necessary financial support.
This website is meant to be a reference and source of support to fathers who are attempting to successfully navigate the challenges, disappointments and obstacles that may follow the break up of their family.
We are anxious to learn how we can provide services to fathers in separated families.
This includes sharing your story and becoming part of a network of similarly committed fathers. In time, we hope our fathers play an increasing role in helping other fathers succeed.

I was so weakened from the continued harm that was done to me that I could barely think and I have nowhere to turn, but you helped to build me back up. Now I see there may be some hope for a future with my children and for a better future for them. Thank you for helping me.” – T. S.
