During the COVID-19 pandemic, many human services organizations, including fatherhood programs, adapted their engagement approaches as the needs of the people they serve changed. This Program Snapshot—part of a project on father engagement strategies across human services programs called KEEP Fathers Engaged —explores how a fatherhood program in South Carolina adapted its program to better engage fathers during the COVID-19 pandemic, and highlights three strategies this program and others used during the pandemic that may help strengthen service delivery going forward. These strategies include (1) emphasizing retention of fathers in programming, (2) adjusting program services to meet new needs that arose during the pandemic, and (3) acknowledging the opportunities created by virtual service delivery.
