Life Maintenance

Good Dads Over-the-Road (OTR) is dedicated to celebrating the unsung heroes of the road: over-the-road trucker dads. We understand the unique challenges and joys that come with balancing life on the road with being a devoted father. That’s why we’re highlighting the stories of exceptional trucker dads who go above and beyond for their families while navigating the highways.

But it’s not just about the dads: It’s also about the families they support and the communities they uplift. We aim to support OTR dads and their families by providing information, training and resources designed to help them strengthen their connection and improve their communication.

What We

  • The millions of dads in America employed as long haul or over-the-road truckers face unique (but not insurmountable) challenges in parenting. 
  • OTR dads often fail to receive the support and recognition they deserve.
  • OTR dads who connect with their kids are an asset to their family and company.
  • Providing support, recognition and resources for OTR dads reduces turnover and helps improve a trucking company’s bottom line.
