Your presence is the best present you can give your child.
Fathers Matter is rewriting the narrative of "deadbeat dad." We believe that men learn and grow when given the opportunity to share experiences with other men. We will challenge you on your journey to become the man you want to be and give you resources and tools to support you along the way. We will walk with you through your toughest times and your happiest moments, plus everything in between. We care about you and you deserve the support you need to make it.

Darrell Creecy is a father of two, has a BA in Psychology from UNO, and got involved in promoting fatherhood awareness because of his own parenting journey. The role of Program Manager is a direct result of his lifelong pursuit of learning about and advancing his role as a man and as a father. "I went through a lot learning how to be a man while being an involved parent. My goal is to help others avoid the same obstacles I faced, support them on their journeys, and build a community for men."
