A new network for dads

Being a dad is one of the greatest joys in life, but, as Toledo father Daina Vincent knows, it can be difficult to maintain a strong relationship with your children when parents experience a separation. After struggling to spend quality time with his son, Vincent aspired to find a better way, so he and a close friend started the Dad’s Club of Lucas County, a local organization that allows dads in similar predicaments not only to vent their frustrations, but to find solutions. The Dad’s Club, which meets once a month at Black Kite Coffee and Pies (2499 Collingwood Ave.), allows fathers to swap resources, share stories and encourage positive change in their own lives as well as their children’s. Participation is free.
