Dads of Monterey County

Dads of Monterey County is an inclusive community open to all fathers, fathers-to-be and prospective fathers included. We organize a variety of programs to provide opportunities for masculine-identified individuals to socialize, learn, and support each other as we navigate parenthood.

Dads Read

Sponsored by The Friends of the Marina Library; join us as we celebrate people of color! One month isn’t enough time to explore the wide range of stories that exist but we intend to try. At the beginning of the The Friends of the Marina Library's Little Kid Block Party, a local dad from Families of Color Monterey County and Dads of Monterey County will read a few specially selected kids' books featuring protagonists of color.

Facebook Group

There are a lot of online spaces that center mothers but there are very few spaces, specifically, for fathers. If you can't make it to any of our monthly meetups or other events, joining our Facebook group is another great way to connect with other dads in the area.
