Mission statement: To eliminate fatherlessness in San Bernardino by promoting a culture of father inclusion and responsible fatherhood in our communities. This mission will be accomplished in collaboration with local schools, community partners, faith-based organizations and public and private agencies. This endeavor is essential for developing stronger families and safer communities for our children. Vision Statement: A society where children thrive, families are strong and communities are safe as a result of responsible fathering.
In 2016, San Bernardino Fatherhood was founded by Ryan Berryman, MSW, as a community-based organization to bring awareness to the importance of father inclusion and responsible fatherhood in communities.
San Bernardino fatherhood provides educational services, resources and advocacy to fathers/men in our community for the well-being of children and strengthening families.
