Celebrating Fathers

Families thrive because fathers are strong. Kids need their Dads, in so many ways. When they don't have one, they're much more likely to be poor, to do badly in school, to abuse drugs, and to be abused and neglected.

That's why, on this Father's Day and every day, we celebrate the man who makes all the difference – Dad.

We're cheering men on as we help them become the fathers that their children need them to be.

Join us in Celebrating Fathers!

Most men want to be good fathers to their children, but some need help getting there. We provide that help. Our Fatherhood programs in 12 locations across South Carolina help fathers obtain jobs, strengthen their parenting skills, build better relationships with their children's mothers, and navigate the legal maze of child support.

Our services are free to participants. We provide a wide array of intensive services under one roof over an extended period of time. We encourage our Dads to stick with the program for six months or more and not solve just the crisis of the day. It takes time to change. A lot of it.

The Center helps about 1,500 fathers annually. Our services are free to participants. But we need YOUR help to keep helping Dads.

There is no dollar figure we can place on the importance of rebuilding families by strengthening fathers. But your gift of $25, $50, $75, $100 or more today will help one more father become an active, positive, supporting influence in his child's life.
