D4SK is dedicated to improving the lives of men and their families who care for children with special needs. We desire to provide an atmosphere where men can share and learn from others.
To accomplish this we host monthly meetings, offer workshops that provide knowledge and practical skills for cultivating healthy communication within the marriage and family, and provide information on resources within the valley of the sun.
Dads 4 Special Kids is committed to men and their families who have a child with special healthcare needs. Established by fathers looking for peer support, we dedicate our time, talents, and resources to better the quality of life for other men through their unique journey of raising their child.
Because we understand first hand the joys and challenges of raising a child with special healthcare needs. Our desire is to support dads through the journey of raising their child, to enhance their personal growth, their marriage, and their family.
- No man should have to raise a child with special needs alone.
- We can learn and gain insight from those that have experienced raising a child with special needs.
- Attend dynamic workshops and obtain resource information for yourself, child, and marriage.
- Develop greater social interaction with other men that are experiencing similar situations.
A Message from the Founder
From the time my oldest son was born, I have been on an amazing journey of personal growth. I know that without a doubt, I would not be the man I am today if it wasn’t for the experience of raising a child with special needs. This is not to say that it has all been easy. But, it has been and will continue to be a daily, God-given challenge to better myself, my faith, and my family by sharing my life with other men who hold the honor of being a father to these special children. This is why I began Dads 4 Special Kids. I want to provide the knowledge and support that I so needed when I began my journey. Every man’s journey is unique, but he should never be alone in the walk! God Bless You All.
