Who we are.

Mission Statement

Founded March 29th, 2012. In keeping with Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr's vision of uplifting the Institution of Fatherhood, this Committee of Bronx fathers will focus pro-actively on engaging, empowering, educating and encouraging fathers.

Our objective is to enlighten and advocate for fathers in our borough and facilitate a path towards productive parenthood. Our goal is to provide resources and new relationships to reinforce fathers as positive role models. The Bronx Borough President has charged this Committee to restore the image of Fatherhood, while responsibly respecting the privilege of being a Dad!

A Message from Ruben Diaz - “As the Bronx Borough President and a young father myself, I am concerned with the well-being of the children in our community and the involvement of our Bronx fathers. This is a crucial time for our borough, and we are moving forward to come up with a way to address and keep fathers involved in their communities. Our goal is to empower the fathers in our community and connect them with the proper resources that can help them take this important step.
