What to expect...

Facilitated activities and discussions to get to know other dads (to be)

Reflection exercises to generate new insights about the transition to fatherhood


That feeling of "I'm not alone"


"It’s just a really unique thing, I’ve never been part of something
like it."


"Absolutely loved it. I think everyone in my family benefited from the dad's group in
some way!"


"I feel generally better knowing that there are other dads out there who give a shit and are present in their
kids' lives."


What if my baby is already here? Check out our Support Groups for Dads (for papas with kiddos of any age) and email Andrew if you have any questions.

Can I bring my partner? If your partner identifies as a man, then yes! Otherwise, no. The experience is designed to enable unfiltered vulnerability that fosters interpersonal connections between men (partners in two-dad families will be paired with other people).

I’m expecting my second (or third, or fourth, etc.) baby, can I join? Yes! While the majority of us are first timers, we understand guys may be looking for connection and community after multiple “reps.” This is a “come as you are” party.

Will there be food? We won’t provide food but you’re welcome to bring your own brown bag lunch. You can eat during our seated activities (other activities will involve moving around).

What does "by donation" mean? At the end of the event we'll invite participants to make donations to support future programs for dads and dads to be. No one turned away for lack of funds.

Join us

More than ever before, we have the opportunity to show up as full parents.

Still, the experience of fatherhood remains lonely and isolating. 

Let's build the support network we need in order to be the dads we want to be, together.
