Circle of Fathers | Meets Virtually on Thursdays @ Virtual
Oct 1 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Men, sometimes you just need to talk, especially now. We’re excited to share a brand-new Circle of Parents group for fathers and male caregivers all around Colorado meeting every Thursday at 5:30 pm starting April 23. We know that fathers are often left out of the conversation when it comes to parenting advice so we wanted to create a space for fathers to share with each other all the ups and downs of parenting. The floor is open to talk about anything, but some topics might include:

·        Activities to do at home with children of all ages

·        How to maintain self-care and self-kindness

·        Resources and tips to stay healthy and safe

·        How to talk about what’s going on with your children

… whatever you want to talk about!

This group is facilitated by Adam Combs, a father of a daughter living in Colorado Springs and Adrian Nuñez , a father of two living in Colorado Springs. They will also soon be starting a Fathers of Freedom group for fathers who are veterans.
