DadsFirst is founded on a single, overarching conviction that involved fathers are critical to the financial, emotional, intellectual and spiritual wellbeing of children and families -- and therefore to the foundation and health of neighborhoods and communities. Fathers are not just nice to have around -- they are profoundly needed and irreplaceable in the lives of their children.

The DadsFirst core principle is grounded in a faith-based understanding of what a family is and how families function in healthy relationships. Research clearly recognizes that a child's wellbeing is materially advanced by strong, high-quality relationships between their parents. Commitment  to such relationships -- healthy marriages and a strong father-child bond  -- advances the well-being of children and families.
