#Dads Matter

The Bethany Hope Centre mission is to support, equip and empower adults, youth and children in the Ottawa Region by building services, partnerships and faith-based community spirit with a primary focus on young parents and their children.

Often, services like ours exclude young fathers from the picture or consider them only as a sideline. We believe that young fathers want to be an important part of their children’s lives and that their healthy involvement is an important contributor to the overall well-being of their child.

At Bethany Hope Centre, fathers are welcome to use almost all of the supports and services that we provide. We also try to provide some fathering-specific programs which acknowledge that there are unique elements to the fathering role that must be acknowledged and supported.

“Dads who are fully engaged with their kids overwhelmingly tend to produce children who believe in themselves and live full lives.” Tony Dungy
