who we are

Nation-Wide Fathering Skills 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization

Better Dads is a nation-wide fathering skills 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to helping people in the community by offering education in areas such as fathering, parenting, mentoring boys, single moms raising boys, healthy masculinity, and family relationships.

We believe that good fathers and good men make a difference in any culture. However, we recognize that people who have grown up without a positive male influence in their lives do not understand how to pass that legacy on to the next generation. Foundationally, we believe changes will happen through promoting and championing responsible fatherhood in men, growing boys to become good husbands and fathers, and providing positive male role models and mentors for men and fatherless boys.

We’ve created five ways to help you partner with Better Dads Ministries in our goal to better the lives of men, women, and families.  Our partners (whether you volunteer, contribute financially, or pray for us) are the most important component of our ministry.  Without your efforts we would never be able to have accomplished any of the life-changing work we have been privileged to perform over the past 20 years. Here are ways you can become involved in our vision of Better Dads = Better Families = a Better World:
