Facing the Scope of Problems
According to 2009 South Carolina Kids Count, the data on families, economic status, health, readiness, school achievement, and adolescent risk behaviors provide a troublesome picture of the children in Darlington County. 38.2% of children in single-parent families, 27% in poverty, 52.3% not graduating from high school, 35.9% of high school students using alcohol and 20.4% using drugs each month, and other data profiled in this report, suggest that too many children are at risk of not growing up to become self-supporting adults, good family members, and responsible community citizens. Macedonia Life-Skills Center is trying to change that.
Solution to Problems
According to South Carolina Kids Count, we must emphasize the positive in providing good support and appropriate influences for children and youth.
