Jim Daly’s personal journey from orphan to The Good Dad to head of an international Christian organization dedicated to helping families thrive is a powerful story. After enduring several tough years in foster care, Daly became a Christian in high school and found meaning, purpose and a sense of belonging. Later after graduating from California State University, Daly worked in the private sector for a FORTUNE 500 company.
Mr. Jim Daly assumed the presidency of Focus on the Family in 2005 after 16 years with the ministry. He started his career in 1989 as an assistant to the president, and since then he has held several roles and titles anywhere from Field Director for Asia, Africa and Australia to Vice President of the International Division and many more. In 2004 he was appointed chief operating officer, the role he held until he was hand-picked by Focus on the Family founder Dr. James Dobson to be the ministry’s president.
“I am living proof,” he wrote in his 2007 autobiography, Finding Home, “that no matter how torn up the road has already been, or how pothole-infested it may look ahead, nothing – nothing – is impossible for God.”
He holds a MBA in International Business and several Humanitarian Awards. Daly has been married to his wife, Jean, since 1986. They have two sons and reside in Colorado Springs, CO.
