A Comprehensive Approach

February 9, 2012

You better believe that I think Marriage Works! But sometimes there are multiple reasons why a relationship isn’t working as well as it should. Thankfully, with our new grant, Marriage Works! Ohio is now able to address two additional areas that sometimes inhibit your relationship: Un/underemployment and raising children.

Two of our new relationship classes (P.I.C.K. and L.I.N.K.S.) are also available “Plus Job Skills” so that in addition to learning communication and other skills for your relationship, you also learn how these skills carry over into the work force. We know that work and finances can be a touchy subject for couples, so on top of the specially designed relationship portion of the “Plus Job Skills” programs we have partnered with Goodwill Easter Seals Miami Valley to work on identifying job and career options, applying for a job, understanding employer expectations and more. Goodwill Easter Seals Miami Valley has helped thousands reach and maintain a better quality of life and we are pleased to have them as a partner.

My kids always seem to put a smile on my face, but growing up they could be a hand full often putting strain on my relationship with my husband and with them. Our new Family Works program is specially designed to help new and experienced parents overcome that strain, deepen their relationship and learn the skills of positive parenting. The program also offers Educare which develops family skills within children while providing childcare services during the classes.

We hope you’re as excited about these new endeavors as we are, but Family Works and Job Skills are not the only new developments at Marriage Works! Ohio; visit our website to learn about all of our programs and find a class near you!
