South Carolina Center for Fathers and Families highlights successes and outcomes in new 2017 impact report

Last year, 7,525 children were positively impacted by the fatherhood programs of the South Carolina Center for Fathers and Families. The center has released its 2017 Impact Report, which highlights continued expansion of services and advancement of the center’s mission to provide the means for fathers to become great dads.

There are now 18 program centers and satellite locations that provide access to services in all 46 counties of South Carolina. Through powerful partnerships and the work of a dedicated staff, more than 3,000 fathers benefited from programs and services that focus on parenting and co-parenting, healthy relationships, job readiness, economic stability and men’s health.

In 2002, the South Carolina Center for Fathers and Families, a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System, was created to reduce child poverty through father engagement. With the mission of providing the means for fathers to become great dads, the center began as a connecting point for independent fatherhood programs across the state. Today it is the hub of a unique statewide network of program centers and satellite offices serving fathers and families in every county of the state.
