MDRC Contributes to Discussion Guides for “DADication” Documentary

07/2022

MDRC is pleased to have contributed to the development of four discussion guides to accompany a new documentary, “DADication,” from the National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse, a project of the federal Office of Family Assistance, Administration for Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The DADication documentary features fathers who appeared in the Clearinghouse’s DADication PSAs and includes additional testimony from fathers and fatherhood practitioners. The short documentary emphasizes how essential fathers are to the lives of their children, illustrates the impact of growing up without a father, provides examples of fathers overcoming numerous barriers to be present for their kids, and demonstrates how fathers and their children are flourishing as a result.

The discussion guides were developed by Nigel Vann at Fathers Incorporated and MDRC’s Diego Quezada, with assistance from Dina Israel (MDRC) and Dzu Bui (The Ad Council), on behalf of the National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse.
