“A Father is one who walks in, when the rest of the world walks out.”
SCSHSA Fatherhood/Male Involvement Programs
Our Mission: To provide opportunity for fathers and significant males to enhance their relationship with their children and families through activities both within the Head Start Centers and their communities.
Objectives: To provide training and support to Head Start Fatherhood Coordinators in order for them to be able to be effective recruiters of fathers and significant others. To assist Head Start Fatherhood Coordinators from programs throughout the state, be effective mentors, advocates and leaders while dealing with male role models facing a variety of obstacles and challenges. Identify community programs for partnership and collaborations in an effort to provide the best resources to fathers and to use a variety of media resources to provide up-to-date recruitment and to showcase fatherhood related activities to increase community awareness and involvement.
