Millions of children do not have a "present" father.
There is a “father factor” in nearly all societal issues facing us today. This is a crisis and Family Lines provides fathers with the tools, resources, experiences and opportunities necessary to make a change and help facilitate intentional presence in their homes and community.
Family Lines staff are lifetime wilderness guides and filmmakers, leveraging their talents along with a passion for fishing to fight absence in fatherhood. Through their films, signature expeditions, hands on workshops, and investment in volunteer facilitators and field instructors [aka "Dadvocates"] Family Lines capitalizes on the intentional space of fishing to challenge fathers to fight absence, choose presence and engage restoration with their children.
