ABOUT

The Father First Initiative   

Father First is a statewide and community-driven initiative empowering fathers to embrace their unique roles in their children’s lives. We champion the belief that every father is the dad their kids need and deserve. Fathers can learn, grow, and push toward being better every day with the right resources, encouragement, and connection. We stand together as dads, showing that perfection isn’t the goal, but being present is.
