Who We Are

We're Believers
In The Power Of Dads.

The South Carolina Center for Fathers and Families works to create stronger, more successful families by helping fathers build the skills they need to be responsible and engaged.

We guide the work of 6 fatherhood programs to provide community-based services and support for fathers and families across the state. We also identify critical issues and obstacles of fatherhood, then educate practitioners, policy makers and the public about how we can solve long-standing societal problems linked to father absence.

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and a ministry of The Sisters of Health System, which addresses the root causes of poverty across South Carolina through grant making, advocacy, thought leadership and capacity building.

Sisters of Charity Health System, based in Cleveland, Ohio, operates hospitals, foundations and outreach ministries in Cleveland and Canton, Ohio as well as Columbia, S.C.


Children, families and communities thrive when fathers are present and engaged. We provide the means for fathers to be great dads.
