CSC Promotes Healthy Marriages

The US Office of Family Assistance recently awarded CSC with a $254,000 grant to work with 150 low-income married couples whose children are enrolled in CSC’s Early Head Start/Head Start program to enhance marriage skills. This award follows on the heels of CSC’s successful model project called Family Formation and Development, which helped unmarried couples improve their relationship and co-parenting skills that would lead to enhanced two-parent support of their child.

The Healthy Marriage program will involve married couples throughout the Lehigh Valley. The 8-week sessions involving 10 couples each will focus on conflict resolution, problem-solving, decision making, stress management, and communication skills.
