Conway group aims to transform Racepath community through expansion

When George Cuff first drifted into A Father's Place, the Conway truck driver showed up to support a friend who was trying to turn things around.

It was Cuff, however, who was transformed by the experience.

“It just changed my life,” the 37-year-old said. “It really did. Emotionally, mentally, they gave me a different outlook.”

For 14 years, A Father’s Place has offered job training, parenting classes, adult education and other services at its Conway headquarters near Racepath Avenue. Last year, the group served 926 people, most of them from the Conway area. But if city officials and the organization’s leadership can agree on the terms, the nonprofit will move across U.S. 378 to an old police substation, allowing the group to expand its offerings.
