Marriage Resource Center has two primary strategies to accomplish its goals: Establish a Community Marriage Policy for Frederick County in which pastors, priests and rabbis join together to strengthen marriages. We are the 196th such community in 42 states and 3 countries. (Our Policy has been established, and over 102 pastors have joined in signing that policy.) Establish a network of trained mentor couples that are available to help other couples to prepare for a life-long marriage, strengthen existing ones, and restore troubled marriages. (Presently, over 70 couples have been trained.) These Mentors will help the couples in need to: Avoid a bad marriage before it begins Prepare couples for a lifelong marriage Enrich all existing marriages Restore troubled marriages Reconcile separated couples Help step-families to succeed Other strategies we will utilize to attain our goals will include: Partner with other community organizations such as Head Start, Care Net, and others to provide relationship training for underprivileged, unwed parents to make marriage a viable alternative for the relationship. Provide our local business community with marriage relationship education tools that will increase the strength of employee families, thus boosting employee productivity and satisfaction with their work and their life in general. Provide premarital education classes and mentoring to every couple considering marriage in Frederick County.
Provide and promote periodic top-quality marriage enrichment events locally at reasonable rates so all may attend. These events will cover topics such as communication skills, conflict resolution skills and financial management skills
