21st Century Dads

Resources Jul 3, 2021

The premier dad to dad mentoring program for dads raising special needs children.

21st Century Dads' mission is to improve the lives of children by raising awareness and resources for greater father involvement; and inspiring dads to be present —physically, emotionally, financially, and spiritually.

Through our personalized matching process, new fathers with a special needs child are connected with another father (A Mentor Father) who has experienced a similar situation.

Mentor Fathers are matched as closely as possible based on the child’s special need, gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic group, and relationship to the child (i.e. father, stepfather, grandfather), providing the younger father with a special needs child, a chance to ask personal questions and receive support from a peer who is truly familiar with the situation.
