Fathers Matter




From the war in the streets of poverty to the war in Iraq, I learned very early of my passion, which is to help people - especially fathers.

I'm J. Dontaé Roberts

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), a Certified Advanced Social Work Case Manager (CASWCM), and a clinical researcher. I have worked with disadvantaged adults, including the homeless, fathers, persons affected by diseases, and Veterans for many years. 


I work with fathers in a research and clinical capacity. My research with fathers consists of understanding their role in reducing the risk of HIV/STIs in African American children, understanding the impact of racial trauma on African American fathers’ mental health, and understanding the barriers African American fathers endure when experiencing homelessness.

Still, my highest and most important achievement is being a father.
