A Father's Success: Noah Henderson
Noah Henderson is a young motivated father with drive and ambition to be the best man/father he can be. He came into the Upstate Fatherhood Coalition on a volunteer basis seeking help with direction and guidance on how to become a well-rounded father as well as seeking assistance with obtaining employment and furthering his education. Noah set goals for himself for the duration of the program and some of those goals have been accomplished already.
Noah registered with SC Works a company that helps job seekers gain employment. Due to the Upstate Fatherhood Coalition's relationship with SC Works, Noah was able gain assistance and enrolled in Greenville Technical College for Construction Engineering. Prior to enrolling in school, Noah scored 12.9 on each section of the TABE (Test for Adult Basic Education). The scores he obtained on each section of the test had not been achieved in the past ten years.
Mr. Henderson recently obtained employment at Southern Culture as a cook and is able to take care of his financial obligations of child support and is enrolled in parenting education classes to enhance his parenting skills. Noah Henderson is a prime example of how the program works if you put forth the effort, change your mind set and focus on the goals you set for yourself to obtain.
