Strong fathers in Asheville, NC

Staff at the SPARC Foundation in Asheville recently completed training in the Strong Fathers model and will begin offering the program in early 2016. We are thrilled to be spreading the program's impact and feel confident that fathers in Asheville are in good hands with the SPARC facilitator team!
