Here at Kids Deserve Dads, we believe that every child should have a father figure in their life. Not just to play baseball with, but to grow with and take advice from. Our non-profit has locations in four states including Colorado, Nebraska, Wyoming, and South Dakota. 

We take pride in our work and are overjoyed with the work we’ve done so far, but we know we have a long way to go to accomplish everything on our list.

What is our mission? 

Our mission is to ensure that every child grows up with both a mother and a father figure. We know how difficult it can be when a child is in the middle of a separation or divorce between parents, which is why we offer help and support to parents in either situation. 

We believe in the power of shared parenting, and strive to prove that it's not only possible, but it is the best possible solution for your child. 

We’re a non-profit business, which means we value our mission so much, that we don’t want anyone to feel excluded for financial reasons. We’ll support you and help you along in your parenthood journey for no cost.

 

How we help families

At Kids Deserve Dads, we want to work with parents to ensure that children get ample time with both parents. Two parental guides are better than one, and with our non-profit, we strive to help families make it happen. 

Support is a wonderful thing and it's effective in helping to decrease stress and anxiety about a situation. What better way than to help parents along than to provide support groups. Our support groups are made up of parents just like you who are going through the same or similar situations. 

By hearing about others’ experiences and how they’re navigating or coping with a new family model that stems from separation or divorce, you’ll be able to gain insight and share your feelings in a close-knit, safe environment.

If you just need someone to listen, our support groups can help. You can share as much or as little as you desire, and you’ll never have to worry about being judged. Kids Deserve Dads is a non-judgmental environment that promotes growth through shared experiences.

Not only do we provide support groups for parents, but in order to promote a shared parenting relationship with your child, we also sponsor events that promote family time. 

For example, events will donate tickets to us that we raffle off to moms, dads, and children. This provides access to an event that a whole family can attend and experience together, regardless of the circumstances.

Want to get involved? 

If you are newly separated from your spouse and have a child, or children together, Kids Deserve Dads is the program for you. 

We love to help families with kids of any age — whether there’s one child or six. We long for you to connect and be connected with your children, even through the toughest trials in life. 

Your children don’t deserve to be parented by a single parent, and you don’t deserve to lose your child. We advocate for shared parenting so that you can enjoy all the joys of being a parent and raising a child — even if you are no longer with your spouse.
