I AM ABLE has contracted with Family Bridges to teach a series of classes that provide healthy marriage and relationship education for North Lawndale residents, as well individuals who are being held at Cook County Department of Corrections. Participants attend three classes, “Growth”, “Premarital, Interpersonal, Choices and Knowledge” and “Love & Money” and receive a total of twenty-four hours of instruction. Topics include communication, conflict resolution, problem-solving skills, and what you should know about a partner before embarking on a long term relationship. The financial management curriculum covers ways to increase savings, create budgets and develop short and long term goals.
Classes are available on Saturdays at I AM ABLE offices. Upon completion, participants will receive a $25 gift card and a certificate. Please let your therapist know if you are interested or have questions.
