Dadhood founder Tony Trammell served on the board of directors of a pregnancy resource center for 11 years. From the beginning, he felt a burden to reach and serve the men who came into the center. In 2003 the Lord opened a door for him to start a men's ministry with no budget and no resources. Finding nothing available to truly help train expectant fathers or counsel abortion-minded men, he began to write and create what is now the "Preparing for Dadhood" curriculum and "Defending Dadhood" handbook. Over the next 7 years he personally coached several hundred clients at 3 locations. He launched Dadhood in 2010, which now partners with centers across America to help them prepare young men for fatherhood, counsel those who are abortion-minded, and establish and build men's ministries.
