DEPENDABLE | ACTIVE | DEDICATED | SUPPORTIVE (D.A.D.S)
According to Single Parent Magazine, the number of single fathers has increased by 60% in the last 10 years, and is one of the fastest growing family situations in the United States. Single DADS are provided with a limited amount of resources that are unique to them or aren’t as readily available to single DADS as they are to single moms. We men can also be our worst enemy because we tend to often view acceptance of help as a sign that we have failed as a man and father. This is where D.A.D.S. of STL will ensure men have a safe space to express their parenting challenges and frustrations while receiving the necessary resources to help DADS overcome and take pride in who they are. AT D.A.D.S of STL we will provide guidance, frequent encouragement, and a support system whom will walk alongside these DADS on their journey.
D.A.D.S of STL is a fast-growing nonprofit organization that is committed to the encouragement, education and empowerment of Fathers.
