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 is open to individuals, programs, institutions, agencies and businesses that have an interest in the well being of fathers and their children in Hamilton County. To us, “father” means biological, adoptive, foster, stepfather, grandfather and any man playing a caretaker role in the life of a child or children.

“The closer the connection between father and child, the better off they both are now and in the future.” – Kyle Pruett, M. D., author of “Fatherneed: Why Father Care is as Essential as Mother Care for Your Child”
