Preparing for Marriage

Research has shown that couples who participate in premarital education have more realistic expectations, handle conflict better and have improved communication skills.  This workshop will introduce couples to a number of useful tools and skills to get you off to a healthy beginning. 

Depending on the schedule of weddings, one day workshops are periodically offered for a group. 

The next scheduled workshop has not been scheduled at this time.
However, engaged couples can call to inquire about other options for premarital education.

Hope for Grieving Children provides a safe and supportive environment where children grieving a death can share their experiences with each other.  This program offers a unique opportunity for children to begin and continue their journey as they move through the healing process.  This program also extends supportive services to family, caregivers, schools and the community.

The Hope for Grieving Children program believes every child deserves the opportunity to grieve in a supportive and understanding environment.

The program encourages the expression of grief experience verbally and through creative positive play within a peer group setting.  The groups are open to grieving children ages 4 to 16.
