City Dads Group continues to grow across the United States with Charlotte, N.C., opening our 19th outpost recently while our ranks reached the 5,000-member mark nationally.
City Dads Group has expanded steadily since first expanding beyond the borders of its flagship New York City location in 2014. In less than two years, our group has added more than 3,700 dads and 18 major metropolitan markets.
The new Charlotte outpost will be overseen by Darrell Humphrey, a father of two boys Ethan and Owen, and husband to wife, Meredith. A stay-at-home parent for three years, he has been involved getting know the vast array of dads in the Charlotte area for several months as part of his work. In his spare time, Darrell loves woodworking, making beer, and being outside with the family.
“Darrell has gotten off to a great start as he creates a community of dads in Charlotte. The city is growing fast, and we hope to be a great resource for local dads of all stripes,” said Matt Schneider, co-founder of City Dads Group.
