This week for the These Dads Are Doing It Right series I wanted to share with you some dads organizations that you need to follow. One of the reasons I created Art of Fatherhood was to support dads that embrace fatherhood. This site and The Art of Fatherhood podcast helps me become a better dad and I hope it does the same for you. If you have a dad or site that you like following on social media or their website please let me know in the comment section. Here is a list of dads sites and social media accounts looking to encourage fathers.
Dads With Daughters – @WithDaughters
With Daughters is a Twitter account that looks to embrace dads who are raising daughters. This account will sift through the internet looking for articles, videos and podcasts that can help dads. There are inspiring memes or heartwarming videos that showcases dads who are doing whatever it takes to provide for their children. I really appreciate the work that With Daughters is doing. We need more positive content. Following With Daughters will brighten up your Twitter feed.

National Fatherhood Initiative or the NFI is the nation’s leading non-profit organization working to end father absence.

The National Center for Fathering – Supporting Dads All Around The World
The National Center for Fathering is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization created in 1990. It was in response to the incredible social and economic impact of fatherlessness in America. They believe every child needs a dad they can count on. Children thrive when they have an involved father or father figure. Kids want to have someone who loves them. They want a dad who knows them, guides them, and helps them achieve their destiny. At the National Center for Fathering, they work to improve the lives of children and reverse the trends of fatherlessness. Lastly, they do this by inspiring and equipping fathers, grandfathers and father figures to be actively engaged in the life of every child. This is site is a perfect example of an organization looking to encourage fathers.
Fatherhood.org – Building Up The Dad Community
Lastly, The National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse goals are to provide help to dads. They do this by research and proven and innovative strategies that will encourage and strengthen fathers and families. Fatherhood.gov is a site for dads looking for tips, hints and even deals for dads and kids. They also provide fatherhood programs for those looking to get started or expand their network of fellow dads. If you haven’t checked out their site I encourage you to do so.
