Since 2006, CFSS has offered Healthy Relationship Education and Healthy Marriage Education to individuals who are economically disadvantaged and at higher risk for negative relationship outcomes.
Under its Vow to Succeed program, CFSS facilitates a variety of evidence-based curricula for youth and adults in schools, after-school settings, community and faith-based settings, and in correctional centers. The educational programs – which can be from 8 to 16 lessons/hours in length – are offered in a series of classes in either a one-hour session once a week or a two-day focused weekend retreat.
