This is the Lancaster Fatherhood Project's second location. The main program center is located on South Wylie Street in Lancaster, which it moved into in May 2016. The Lancaster Fatherhood Project has been improving the lives of fathers and families in the Catawba region since 1999. It serves Chester, Lancaster, York and Union counties. Now that it has expanded into York County, more fathers will be able to obtain support in personal development; parenting; health and wellness; job readiness and other resources that enable men to become the fathers they want to be for their children.
