why Fathers
Matter

More than you may realize, fathers can change outcomes for their children and for all of us.

It costs about $2,000 to support one father through our six month program.

Every dollar helps us cultivate our state’s most underused resource—fathers—by providing parenting and job skills for more than 3,200 dads annually at sites across South Carolina.

Generous support from partners and people like you make it possible for our services to be offered free of charge to all program participants.
