What does Dads MOVE do? How do you transform the life of a child? Of a dad? Sometimes dads cry on the outside when they don't know how to deal with a particular situation with his child. Sometimes dads lash out, they say things in their emotional stress that they would never say nor do they truly feel. Dads MOVE works to help dads process raising a difficult child, fully immersing in that child's life, and breaking the stereotype that only a mom is emotionally equipped to deal with a special needs child.
Dads MOVE gives dads a lifeline through mentorship and relationships with other dads in the same boat. YOU ARE NOT ALONE! At Dads MOVE, dads lean into the process and into each other for guidance and support. Many times, dads are on the brink as this wife and mother shared at a recent conference: "My husband was suicidal when he came to a Dads MOVE father's weekend. The mentorship, support and education he received saved his life and our family." - Attendee at the 2019 National Federation of Families for Children's Mental Health (name withheld per request)
