Washington, D.C., dads and those in its surrounding suburbs now have a chapter of City Dads Group to call their own.
DC Dads Group started earlier this year in our nation’s capital. Heading the new chapter is Abraham Walker, a real estate agent who lives and works in neighboring Alexandria, Va. Walker is a father of two children, ages 8 and 10. He initially started the Washington, D.C., dads group by looking for local fathers who wanted to hang out through a social media app, then turned to City Dads Group to expand the new organization.
With more than 700,000 residents, Washington, D.C, is the 20th most populated city in the United States. However, as the home to our nation’s federal government, its daytime populations swells with residents from the surrounding suburbs in Virginia and Maryland commuting in for work. When those areas in neighboring states are included, the D.C. area has the sixth largest metropolitan population at approximately 6.2 million residents.
