West Shore Dads is a unique grass-roots support group created specifically for those men who want to become the best dads that they can be, not only to benefit their children, but to also improve the quality of their own lives.
West Shore Dads meets on the first and third Monday of every month in the Lakewood Family Room (17400 Northwood Avenue). There is no cost for admission, and free refreshments are provided. Dads of all types are welcome (while the focus is on dads with kids aged 0-12, dads of teenagers are also welcome). Occasional Saturday outings scheduled throughout the coming year.
West Shore Dads operates in collaboration with the Lakewood Division of Human Services and the Department of Early Childhood. Its home-base is in Lakewood, but dads from West Park, Fairview Park, Rocky River, Westlake and Bay Village are also encouraged to attend.
