FAMILY LIFELINE INC
June 19, 2012
I asked if I could volunteer at The Family Lifeline, and ended up staying since I am so impressed with the changes happening in the lives of the clientle we serve. People come in hurting emotionally and leave all bandaged up. Others come perplexed with questions about their relationships and leave with answers. Still more come to "tune up" the relationship they are currently enjoying. There are couples who come to get "premarital training." They leave with a "tool box" they can draw from when obstacles present themselves. When my husband and I had been married 25 years we really hit the wall in our relationship. There had been one thing after another happening in our lives from job loss to kids and drugs, to school problems, to losing our home etc....All that to say our relationship with each other was shelved. We didn't know one another any more. As a volunteer, I saw the obvious impact of relationship education on other couples at The Family Lifeline and we decided to enter the mentoring program ourselves! We are making changes, and coming back to each other while we learn to use our tools. I'm so grateful! Danielle
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I have personally grown through the classes I have attended. The mentoring program has turned my 26 year marriage away from certain destruction. My husband and I are still married as a direct result of this organization!
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Give more money and time. I would get more likeminded people involved here to help restore more relationships.
