Pee Dee organization gets $575,000 to help low income families

Marion County, S.C. (WPDE) — The Pee Dee Community Action Partnership (PDCAP) has received $575,000 to continue its mission to help low-income families, according to Anita Stevenson Magwood with the partnership. Magwood said Children’s Trust awarded PDCAP $75,000 for its Strengthening Families Program out of Marion County.

The organization’s website says the Strengthening Families Program is a “Nationally and internationally recognized evidence-based program that works closely with families to teach effective parenting techniques that reduce problem behaviors and conflict through positive discipline. Through a partnership with The Duke Endowment and S.C. Department of Social Services, Children’s Trust is providing multi-year funding to the PDCAP along with designated partners to deliver program sessions and work with families in their respective communities. Children’s Trust of South Carolina is now partnering with Pee Dee Community Action Partnership to deliver the Strengthening Families Program (SFP) in Marion County.”

Magwood added the program seeks to reduce conflict, improve parenting skills and help children with social skills among other things.

“It’s helping us to implement evidence-based programs for rural counties like Marion County. It’s allowing us to be able to positively touch lives. Transform lives,” said Magwood.

PDCAP was also funded $500,000 from the Office of Economic Opportunity to help with its low-income energy assistance program.

Through that program, PDCAP is able to help families pay their power bills.

The organization’s website says its mission is to ” Develop and improve low-income communities and neighborhoods through economic and related development, with a primary function of developing projects and activities designed to enhance economic opportunities of the people we serve and to implement and advocate developmental and human services delivery programs for socially and economically disadvantaged elderly, children and families. Our program performance will be tracked with the use of the ROMA and other Federal and State mandated systems.”

A native of Olanta, SC, Jonathan Strickland is the owner of Strickland’s Boxing and Fitness. A lifelong lover of the sport, Mr. Strickland began his boxing career in 2006, under the tutelage of Larry James and Joe Parks of Florence Weed and Seed. Mr. Strickland then went on to train at various gyms and training camps, throughout the east coast. His career was cut short, due to injuries sustained in a car accident in 2009. Because he loves his community and mentoring the youth, Mr. Strickland began an afterschool boxing program, in 2012. This helped him to still be a part of the sport he loves, while providing a therapeutic outlet for the youth in his area. He started his company, Strickland’s Boxing and Fitness, in April of 2016, after being approached by several people, requesting boxing lessons. To further assist his community, Mr. Strickland partners with several others to organize food and clothing drives, rallies for the organization Stop The Violence, and events to raise money for various causes.
