To create and sustain community consciousness, conversation and action on the needs and aspirations of fathers and their role in the development of healthy children and families.


A community that openly and enthusiastically supports fathers as unique assets to thriving children, families and communities

The Fatherhood Collaborative of Hamilton County welcomes fathers, family serving programs, organizations, institutions and agencies; business, civic, arts, government, healthcare, education, faith-based, legal and all others who have an interest or a stake in the well-being of Hamilton County’s dads.

“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person – he believed in me.” Jim Valvano

The Fatherhood Collaborative of Hamilton County believes that:

  • All fathers: adoptive, incarcerated, single, biological, foster, homeless, married, father-figures, returning citizens and all other father-types deserve support from our community
  • There is no fatherhood without women and mothers; we therefore respect and support women and the role they play in healthy and thriving fathers, children and families
