Utah is the latest state to join the City Dads Group social and support network as a chapter recently opened in Salt Lake City.
The Salt Lake City Dads Group (SLC Dads for short) is being headed by Travis Chaston, a stay-at-home dad with two young daughters.
“I’ve been the primary caregiver from the beginning, and I was usually the only man at the playground and not always accepted by the moms,” said Chaston, who has been home with girls since late 2017. “The Salt Lake City Dads Group was started to provide opportunities to meet other dads and socialize. We share stories, get advice from each other without judgment, build friendships, and have a good time.”
In addition to being the capital of Utah, Salt Lake City is the most populous municipality in the state. It has nearly 191,000 people in the city proper and 1.15 million in the entire metro area, based on 2014 U.S. census figures. While well known for its tourist industry built around outdoor recreation such as skiing and hiking, the city is also considered the industrial banking center of the United States.
