Dads Matter

  • Dads Sharing
  • Dads Supporting
  • Dads Inspiring Dads

Ben and the Dads Matter group has been a blessing to me. Ben provided me with much needed practical information and encouragement during a very stressful time. And having the support of other dads who have had their own challenges and successes made a big difference as well.

Dads Matter has been so impactful to me in that it shows me I am not alone. Friends and even sometimes family have no idea of the struggle it is to raise a child with a diverse ability making the road isolating and lonely. This group is empowering to be a part of because it shows me that I am not alone in raising my child.

  • Find out more about inclusive and supportive housing in your community

Having been a participant in the inclusive housing zoom calls for a long time, the information, resources and the family connections made are invaluable. The sessions offer a range of possibilities from many different presenters from across BC, Canada and even the US.  The facilitator is committed to helping families explore solutions to housing for those with diverse abilities.  The sessions are always kind and respectful and positive.

I look forward to the “Families on Tuesday” hangouts to connect with other families going through similar struggles and lived experiences.  It is a safe space to share stories and ask for help.  Ben does a great job at making people feel safe and respected. It is a good place to go to for compassion, ideas or resources.”
