About Dads for a Day
DADS FOR A DAY | WHO WE ARE
Dads For a Day is a faith-based volunteer nonprofit agency that provides one-on-one mentoring programs for at-risk boys living in fatherless homes. Our purpose is to teach these boys important virtues and life lessons that promote strong interpersonal skills, positive social behaviors, solid work ethics, self-confidence and instill a sense of hope in their future.
Dads For a Day was created in direct response to the growing number of fatherless homes found throughout our Central Florida area. “One in three children in the Central Florida Region live in father-absent homes”. Many fathers have abandoned their children, others died in accidents or from health problems, some are incarcerated and there are those who died in combat while serving in the military. Regardless of the reasons, we at Dads For a Day stand ready to fill the gap left behind after fathers are permanently gone from the lives of their sons.
