South Carolina Center for Fathers and Families celebrates a successful 2015 at annual luncheon

The South Carolina Center for Fathers and Families held its annual Christmas luncheon December 18 to celebrate a successful 2015.

Jason Puhlasky, a consultant who represents the center’s interests at the South Carolina State House, served as the keynote speaker. He told his story of the pain he felt growing up without a father.

The South Carolina Center for Fathers and Families honored several of its programs for the work each did in 2015, including:

  • The “Step-Up” Award was given to the Midlands Fatherhood Coalition for consistently rising to the challenge.
  • The Pioneer Award was given to Man 2 Man for expanding into new territory without any increase in funds or personnel.
  • The Program of the Year Award went to A Father's Place, the defending champions.

The center also honored Chrissy Dingeldine for her service as a board member since 2004.

The South Carolina Center for Fathers and Families, which is a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System, supports six fatherhood programs in South Carolina while promoting father-friendly policies and practices, and helping to erase society's negative stereotype of unwed, low-income dads.
