Dads Make a Difference. And yet, too many dads today are not involved in their children’s lives. Not because they do not want to be involved, but things have simply gone wrong. Relationships with their children’s mothers have become strained, jobs have failed, and life has gotten complicated and disappointing. Too often, fathers missed the best instructor of all: their own fathers, acting as positive role models.
Father to Father, Inc.cares and helps fathers and their families. It is the only nonprofit with more than ten years of experience in the Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester region whose sole mission is to help fathers overcome the barriers to being a responsible and involved father. The center is located in North Charleston, South Carolina, and it serves fathers from Charleston, Dorchester and Berkeley counties.
Staff members understand fathers and families and are among some of the most experienced and knowledgeable fatherhood practitioners in our state, serving approximately 150 fathers each year, and there is room for more.
In addition to supporting fathers and families, they are a resource to businesses seeking employees who are ready to work, and community organizations that want to learn more about father absence and engaging fathers.
The program is sustained through the generous support of community organizations and individuals and government partnerships. They are part of a network of fatherhood programs reaching all across the state, which is supported and coordinated by the South Carolina Center for Fathers and Families. Collectively, Father to Father, Inc., and our peer fatherhood programs serve more than 1,200 fathers annually.
