DAY1DADS Impact Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by two friends and fathers, Curtis and Steve, with over 25 years of friendship.
Their mission is to connect dads with the supports and resources they need to be the best fathers they can be. They believe that every dad has the potential to make a positive impact in the lives of their children, and they’re dedicated to providing the tools and support dads need to succeed.
Their goals with D1D is to create a strong, supportive community of dads who can rely on each other for help, advice, and encouragement as they navigate the challenges and joys of fatherhood.
The "Hey Dad Care Card" by the DAY1DADS Impact Foundation gathers a multitude of father-focused resources. It encompasses mental health aid from BetterHelp, suicide prevention resources, and the Talk Suicide Direct Line. Alongside Canadian resources, it provides guidance on initiating conversations, access to the DADY1DADS Book Club, and connectivity through BuddyUp.
Augmented by additional resources from Care Card Canada, this comprehensive collection serves as a pivotal hub for fathers, promoting holistic well-being, nurturing a supportive community, and facilitating active participation in family life and beyond.
