Fathers are an important part of children’s lives and play a crucial role in healthy child development.

Through our weekly father-child interaction groups, our monthly dads’ workshops, and our monthly dads’ outings, we work to increase fathers’ confidence, their competence, and to connect them with other dads and their community. All services provided for dads are provided by dads.

Through consistent funding through Children’s Trust Fund of Oregon and continuous support from volunteer fathers, our Community Dads’ Group has meeting weekly since 2009. A special thank you to Papa Murphy’s Pizza for treating our families to dinner every week.
