Founded in 1997, Fathers’ Support Center is dedicated to improving the lives of children and families by encouraging committed and responsible parents.
For 20 years, Fathers’ Support Center has served 15,000 fathers and their families — this includes almost 40,000 children. FSC has experienced continued success with its nationally-recognized partnerships.
Fathers’ Support Center’s rigorous, full-immersion Family Formation Program boasts a 92% job retention rate for its clients. Of the 270 fathers enrolled throughout 2017, 76% report improved or developed healthy relationships with their children. The men who completed the program in the past year are paying a combined $230,000 annually to directly support their children.
In 2017, on a $3.9 million budget in program expenses, FSC’s return on investment to the St. Louis community totaled more than $14.4 million. That’s just an initial return, and as parents, families, and communities grow stronger, the positive effect continues to multiply.
