The DADvocacy Consulting Group (DCG) acknowledges the vital roles of fathers and mothers alike. DADvocacy builds upon research that affirms that children, fathers, families, and communities are better off when fathers and children are positively engaged in each other’s lives. It includes an active, lifelong commitment to the physical, emotional, social, cognitive/academic, creative, and moral/spiritual well-being of children. DADvocacy takes deliberate actions and helps develop policies to support, encourage, and optimize opportunities for fathers, grandfathers, and father figures to be involved in children’s lives, and vice versa.
