Research shows that mothers and fathers have different, yet equally important, roles in their children’s development, success and happiness in life. Children who maintain healthy, quality relationships with both their mom and their dad following the separation of their parents usually experience better adjustment and more positive rates of development.
The Dads’ Resource Center was established to promote the well-being and healthy development of children from separated or divorced families by helping to support and encourage fathers to be fully and actively engaged in the lives of their sons and daughters. We believe society, the courts and social agencies have an obligation to ensure this happens so dads can provide the time, input, emotional and financial support that their children deserve and require.
The Dads’ Resource Center was founded to support this important goal by providing education, resources and advocacy for not only single dads, but everyone who wants children to prosper and reach their potential.
