The Real Dads Network is an organization of dads, father figures, male role models and others committed to strengthening the institution of Fatherhood by connecting men with resources designed to empower them to be "Real Dads:" present, providers, protectors and peacemakers.
Our mission is to encourage fathers to be fully involved in the well-being of their child's life. In addition, we want to promote and celebrate those fathers who are actively involved. We also advocate for shared parenting regardless of the living or marital situation.
The Real Dads Network engages in and sponsors a variety of activities: daddy-daughter valentine's dance, Fathers' Week celebrations, skill-building workshops, informational seminars, male mentoring, networking, community and school based partnerships, advocacy, etc., designed to educate and encourage men to embrace their roles as dads, husbands and leaders in the context of family and community life.
