We are InvolvedDad, a 501c3 non-profit organization that is committed to impacting the lives of father's. Father's involved today, shaping tomorrow's legacy.
Empower and promote males to become actively engaged father's or father figures in the life of every child. Eradicate fatherlessness by turning the heart of the father back to the heart of children, one father at a time. Motivate father's to become actively involved in the lives of their children. Leading the way, making a difference. Train father's in the best parenting practices to empower and influence their children to walk in continual success.
Established in 2015, InvolvedDad serves as a leader in the field of Responsible Fatherhood. Our mission focuses on remediating the impact of father absence. This is accomplished using strategic and innovative social marketing, multi-media platforms, traditional communications, collaboration efforts, educational and fun events, capacity building and product development. We believe that Strong communities grow from healthy family relationships. This focus ensures that fathers, particularly noncustodial fathers facing limited employment opportunities and increasing debt, receive the supports they need to provide for the well-being of their children – both emotionally and financially.
InvolvedDad is an organization that helps improve the quality of life for families by motivating and equipping fathers with the necessary tools to impact their sphere of influence. We are designed for those that need guidance and support with problem-solving and antidotes to overcome the challenges associated with fathering and fatherhood. InvolvedDad provides resources such as literature, training, moral support, peer interaction, and bond building for those who are involved in their family lives as fathers, father figures, and male guardians.
Fatherhood & Mentoring
Our mission is to strengthen community and family infrastructure by encouraging the positive involvement of fathers in the lives of children. Our work will make a significant contribution to the work of Responsible Fatherhood and Mentoring.
We work through the use of innovative social marketing and multi-media platforms, traditional communications, and product development. We seek to expand the range of work in the fields of comprehensive and non-traditional family service models.
Fatherhood and The Community
Strong communities grow from healthy family relationships. This focus ensures that fathers, particularly noncustodial fathers facing limited employment opportunities and increasing debt, receive the supports they need to provide for the well-being of their children – both emotionally and financially.
We are committed to rendering services to new and existing father's through various efforts and collaberations. We are on a mission to eradicate the normalcy of fatherlessness in today's home.
Research shows that children with involved, loving fathers are significantly more likely to do well in school, have healthy self-esteem, and exhibit positive social behaviors compared to children with uninvolved fathers. In addition, committed, responsible fathering during childhood has been shown to contribute to children’s math and verbal skills, curiosity, and emotional security.
InvolvedDad works actively and diligently to involve fathers in the lives of their children through a variety of programs, activities, training and marketing media campaigns.
