Baby, if you’ve ever wondered, wondered why there isn’t a Cincinnati Dads Group … well, wonder no more.
City Dads Group has formed its 30th chapter in the Midwest city famed for Dr. Johnny Fever, serving chili over spaghetti and baseball’s Big Red Machine. The Cincinnati metropolitan area have more than 2.1 million residents while the city proper, at around 300,000 people, is the 28th largest in the United States.
The “Cincy Dads” will be led by Brock Lusch of Madison Place, Ohio. Lusch, a married father of two pre-schoolers, is a full-time stay-at-home dad.
“There are so many moms’ groups around, but I had not heard of a dads group in Cincinnati,” he said. “Just talking to other dads about having a group to hang out, have play dates and not be isolated, gets other fathers energized. We are excited about getting to meet the many active dads of the Greater Cincinnati area.”
City Dads Group is a dynamic and diverse community of fathers redefining, by example, what it means to be a dad in the 21st century. Our national support network has more than 9,700 members based in and around major metropolitan U.S. cities. These include Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles and New York City.
Founded in November 2008 in New York City as a way a handful of fathers could arrange playdates and outings with their children, the organization went national as City Dads Group in 2014.
