SFBV kicks-off classes in Caldwell and Madisonville



Strengthen Families of the Brazos Valley hosted “Marriage and Relationship” workshops in Madisonville and Burleson counties on Saturday. The nearly eight-hour course was offered to couples and individuals who are married or in cohabiting relationships seeking to strengthen those relationships.  The course offered a lifetime of practical ideas and tools to help keep relationships strong and healthy. This was the first ever workshop taught by the  SFBV’s program coordinators.

Holly Narro, Program Coordinator for Burleson County said, “The adults who were in attendance were enthusiastic and actively participated in the individual as well as group activities. The participants had positive feedback and were most appreciative that the program was offered close to home in Burleson County. They especially found the Speaker Listener Technique and Communication tools to be helpful.”

SFBV is a new project within the Family and Community Health unit of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension. The project will seek to provide couples and individuals with the tools and resources they need to create and maintain healthy families.

Courses are free and will also be offered in Brazos, Grimes and Robertson counties.
