This drop-in group is open to dads-to-be, stay at home dads, working dads, dads of infants, toddlers, older children, teenagers, and adults - any self-identified dad - to share the joys, challenges, questions and expectations of being or becoming a father. New and expecting fathers, this the group for you.
Join us every second Saturday of the month.
The group aims to explore what it means to be a "dad" by learning from others, sharing resources, and building a support community to help dads be the parents, caregivers, and partners they aim to be.
Topics may include:
-Parenting strategies and styles
-Navigating changing identities and relationships
-Self-care and partner support
-Inter-generational family dynamics
-Whatever else is of concern to fathers out there looking for community.
-Participants are invited and encouraged to bring infants.
