This time of year people are focused on making and keeping their New Year’s resolutions. Some like quitting bad habits or making good habits are pretty straightforward. If you want to quit smoking, exercise more, read more, or eat healthily; there are very clear ways to start and places to get help. For others, like finding a community or group that will help you in your goal to be a better father, getting started on the right foot can be tricky.
That’s what the City Dads Group is all about. At its core, the group wants to form diverse communities for fathers who are looking to socialize and interact with other guys who enjoy spending quality time with their children.
We are all in here at the Chicago Dads Group. We love the chance to meet other dads who love being dads. This year our group made it past the 1000 member mark, and we’d love to have even more! We have seen first-hand the positive effects of creating a network of friendships and resources to help our members become the dads they want to be. Whether it is activities like a play date in Maggie Daley Park or a Dad’s Night Out playing whirly ball, we are strengthened by every new father that joins our tribe.
We do a lot together here are some of our member’s favorite memories and activities:
I play competitive, energetic basketball every week with Dads from our group!

It’s a brotherhood of guys who have great advice on childcare and are just fun to be around. I love Dad’s Night Out. I like getting away from the kids for a little adult time.
– Al W.
It’s nice to feel like there are others out there who share what I’m going through. We have a great group of guys…as fathers but also just as people who are fun to be around. My kids still talk about going fishing with the group, even though they were bored and didn’t catch anything. The experience was everything!
– Kyle E.

Great dads don’t happen overnight it takes time, effort, and commitment. That doesn’t mean you have to start from scratch though. We’d love to add your perspective and experience to our own.
If you’ve been looking for a way to connect with other active and engaged fathers here in the Chicagoland area check out some of our upcoming events… We’d love to have you!
