  • Supporting Healthy Relationships is a place to build and practice core relationship skills through discussion, teaching, peer-to-peer learning, and workshop-style practice with the help of clinically trained (Master's and Ph.D. level) male-female marriage educators

  • We use a well-researched curriculum (Loving Couples, Loving Children), based on 20+ years of research by psychologist Dr. John Gottman, a top expert in the field of marriage, relationships, and parenting.

  • Couples are offered comprehensive employment and career services to empower them to achieve family and financial success.

  • Couples also attend "Extended Activities" (e.g. Social Night, Family Activities, Employment workshops, additional life-management workshops) designed to enhance a sense of community and ensure couples maintain relationship, parenting, and family financial gains.
