Research shows that fathers and mothers have different but equally important roles in their children’s development, happiness and overall successful lives. Children who maintain healthy, quality relationships with both their mom and 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 health and well-being of children from separated or divorced families. We are committed to helping support and encourage fathers to be fully and actively engaged in the lives of their sons and daughters. We believe society as a whole including the courts and social agencies have an obligation to ensure this happens so fathers 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.
