Project F.R.E.E. (Fostering Relationship & Economic Enrichment)

Project F.R.E.E.

This a grant funded program for fostering stable and safe homes through co-parenting and financial capability programs. These programs are offered for couples, single parents and foster caregivers.

What is Project F.R.E.E. ?

Project F.R.E.E is a campus-community partnership helping parents develop skills to strengthen the quality of their couple and/or co-parenting relationships. We are also supporting parents in building the capacity to build and manage financial resources.

Parenting Together? The responsibilities of parenting add heavy demands on all couples. Negotiating these changes can often become a source of tension. Our Elevate program provides couples (married or unmarried) with strategies and skills to manage stress and conflict while strengthening your relationship.

Parenting Apart? Parenting together for parents who are apart can be challenging. Our Together We Can program helps single parents develop strategies and skills to manage stress and conflict, promote a positive co-parenting relationship, and develop future healthy romantic relationships. 

Both programs are free! These no-cost, 8 hour programs also include a meal and on-site childcare (space is limited) at each class, as well as $80 for attending all 4 classes. In addition to elevating your relationships, parents can also participate in research that will help support future programs. Each participant can earn up to $125.00.

Upcoming Classes

These 4-7 week FREE classes will be offered this fall (2017) in Morgan County.  Check back soon for specific dates and locations.
