Welcome to Dads of Douglas County's Wellcommons Group

Welcome. Dads of Douglas County has opened this Wellcommons group for father figures in Douglas County a resource for networking, advocacy for children, and news about the importance of father figures in the lives of children.

We celebrate dads.

We are asking fathers to become contributors by writing short blogs that tell stories of fathers - stories of joy, sadness, redemption, parenting challenges and heroic transformation.

Dads of Douglas County would also like to invite dads, families and the entire community to Dad Days June 14-19.


Join Us for a Fun-Filled Week of Activities!

Look for great Passport to Savings deals from downtown merchants all week long!
