Brotherhood

the fatherhood

It’s our responsibility to guide and support our biological children while showing up as “community fathers” to the children who lack strong, positive male role models.

Who We Are

Dadish was created to recognize, guide, and uplift the men that take fatherhood seriously. We foster a safe space for dads searching for guidance and direction on navigating fatherhood.

 

We are a brotherhood- non-judgemental, open, and welcoming to all dads, no matter age or marital status. And while fellowship is what brought us together, the future is what keeps us together.

As a collective, we have realized that the youngest minds are the ones easiest molded. It’s our responsibility to guide and support our biological children while showing up as “community fathers” to the children who lack strong, positive male role models.

Our goal is to make being Dadish as cool and aspirational as being successful. Money and accomplishments mean nothing if you let your home fail.

Success is not measured by the amount of money you have but by the number of lives you impact.

Who We Are
Problem

The Challenge 

There are 1.8 million “solo” dads in the US. Statistics on absent fathers show that 7 million American dads were absent from the life of all their minor children. According to the statistics of fatherless homes, 17.4 million children lived in fatherless homes.

 

Growing up without a father figure has a profound effect on boys that lasts into manhood. ... Without having this influence in their lives, boys are at risk of growing into men who have problems with behavior, emotional stability, and relationships with both significant others and their own children.

 

This is especially true for daughters. Countless studies have shown that fatherlessness has an extremely negative impact on daughters' self esteem. Her confidence in her own abilities and value as a human being can be greatly diminished if her father isn't there.

Our Purpose

DADish Foundation, a non-profit 501 (c) (3) focuses on providing a healthy community where men can fellowship ,  discuss , and share different ways to connect , and grow with their children. It includes activities to develop relationship skills for conflict resolution, communication, financial literacy, family safety, health tips, and parenting. The goal is to empower Men by providing the tools necessary to support their growth in and outside of the household as Dad’s, Brother’s , Uncle’s , Son’s , Nephew’s, and Cousin’s,  as well as leaders in their communities.

Statistics

The Why: Statistics

The statistics are clear. Dads matter! However there are not enough resources in existence to help men flourish in fatherhood. We need a space where Dads can be vulnerable without being judged, a space where Dads don't have to know all the answers, a space where it's ok for Dads to feel intimidated and overwhelmed and express those feelings without judgment. This space is Dadish- the Fatherhood Brotherhood.

How To Live 

“How To Live” is a 2 tier program. The 1st Tier of the program is school based for children , and the the 2nd Tier is a male focused component.
