South Carolina Center for Fathers and Families adds new location to reach more fathers

The South Carolina Center for Fathers and Families is adding a new fatherhood program in Aiken, South Carolina, and recently held a kickoff event there to introduce its ministry as it prepares to begin operations in the community.

Nearly 30 local leaders in business, government, and public and private social service agencies gathered on the campus of the University of South Carolina Aiken for the kickoff event. The expansion to Aiken is the result of a partnership between the center, the Midlands Fatherhood Coalition and the Department of Social Services Integrated Child Support Services (ICSS) division.

The South Carolina Center for Fathers and Families supports six fatherhood programs in 11 communities across the state—soon to be 12 with the addition of Aiken—while promoting father-friendly policies and practices and helping to erase society's negative stereotypes of unwed, low-income dads.

The South Carolina Center for Fathers and Families is a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System.
