Dads MOVE is a 5013c nonprofit and has since its inception been largely a volunteer lead nonprofit. We have received 3 grants from funders and we know this is a direction we want to go to.

In 2018 Dads MOVE hired its first Executive Director.
During 2020 In response to COVID-19 and the pandemic, the need for our services is even greater. Our nonprofit exists to help dads build their skills and a support network for those struggling with their children's behavioral needs.

Our goal is to recruit a team of volunteers from around the US, who are interested in supporting our nonprofit by researching grant funders.

As the volunteers complete around 2 dozen grants (around the 3rd month) often they will want to help more and begin to write on behalf of Dads MOVE. For those that are interested and ready, writing can be for a letter of introduction, a letter of interest, or part or all of a grant. We require a minimum of 12 grants to be researched as we really want those who write for us to truly understand how we implement our mission and what our collective impact is. Your passion for our work needs to show through in your research and writing.

If you enjoy research, or writing we need you! And if you are passionate about Dads MOVE all the better. The time commitment is as follows:

Applicants will be screened now through December 20th Interviews will be from Dec 21 to January 4th, 2021.

For those candidates who are selected for interviews and get moved forward, you will be required to provide 3 references (with how you know the person, their phone, and email). We will ask you to complete a background check and conflict of interest/confidentiality form.

Have we captured your interest?
If so, please reply in volunteer match, tell us about your experience with research and writing grants, why Dads MOVE, and can you commit to the time commitment for a minimum of 1 year. Thank you in advance for your consideration. We look forward to hearing from you.

Mission Statement

To strengthen the fathers role in raising children with behavioral health needs through education, peer Support and Advocacy.


Since 2011 Dads MOVE has sought to help struggling fathers and their families that are raising children with mental health and behavioral disorders. Over the years we have learned how many issues affect these children from trauma to the parent's own mental health.

We are a family-focused, father driven non-profit that serves families raising children with behavioral health concerns. The services we provide families are low to no cost, thanks to grants and our supporters like you. When we charge, we aim to recover our direct costs and we also offer financial assistance. We are committed to removing barriers and being an inclusive nonprofit.
