Fostering can be an isolating journey. I've needed other men to get me through the toughest of times and keep going.

Foster & Adoptive Dads  - An F/A Brotherhood

In the world of Foster & Adoptive (F/A) Dads, there is little material & content.   We believe men hold an important role on this journey and are often under-represented. 

The Problem: 

  • 50% of foster families quit within the first year.

  • Men actively care for kids from hard places but are often viewed and treated as secondary caregivers and thus get the backseat in feeling included.  This quickly leads to isolation, frustration, confusion, marital conflicts, burnout, disruption, and quitting. 

  • The largest barrier to families taking care of kids from hard places is resistance from men getting involved. 

 

Mission: To build connections and friendships of support and encouragement between F/A dads.

Vision:  To grow a confident and competent F/A brotherhood throughout the Miami Valley so no F/A Dad is isolated and without support. In so doing, to recruit and retain more F/A dads throughout the region until we can provide More Than Enough love and care for every child from a hard place.
