Mission
Dear Black Fathers is committed to empowering fathers, men, and youth through brave conversation, personal development, and building community.

Why?
In America, 23.6% of children lived in father-absent homes in 2014. Consequently, there is a “father factor” in nearly all of the societal issues facing America today. This data tells us that, we as a society must recognize that there is a father absence crisis in America, and begin empowering more fathers, and their families, to ensure they have equitable access to quality education, training, parenting resources, career pathways, and inclusive networks.

How?
Dear Black Fathers’ empowers families through story telling, transformational workshops, network/weaving, personal development, peer groups, and brining awareness to mental health. One aspect of our work is capturing and sharing authentic stories from a diverse population of fathers, to bring more awareness to the racial injustice and systemic barriers that adversely impact black families and black communities as a whole.
