Healthy Marriage & Relationships
At Kentucky River Foothills, we are dedicated to creating stronger and healthier relationships in our community, one step at a time.
Dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.
A strong family has many significant implications for the health and well-being of both adults and children. At Kentucky River Foothills, we are dedicated to creating stronger and healthier relationships in our community, one step at a time.
Healthy relationships lead to healthier societies, communities, families, homes, and ultimately, healthier children. Foothills’ FRAMEWorks program helps individuals and families improve their relationship skills and paths toward economic stability and mobility.
Do you want to strengthen your relationship and family dynamic? Do you need effective communication and conflict resolution skills? Do you need help to find, apply for, and keep a job?
If yes, then FRAMEWorks is the perfect fit for you.
The FRAMEWorks program helps individuals and couples appreciate the expectations and commitments that are part of any relationship dynamic such as managing finances, conflict resolution, effective communication, setting and managing expectations, and more. Each topic and skill introduced within the FRAMEWorks curriculum strives to strengthen relationships and improve parenting skills where applicable.
Our goal is to provide educational services to help all individuals and couples to form and sustain healthy relationships and enduring marriages.
We provide services to the public and all are welcome to participate in our classes. We offer free classes for those already in a couple relationship, as well as classes to individuals who are currently not in a romantic relationship. Our classes focus on learning skills that will improve and maintain quality couple relationships.
Our target population for this series is adult individuals, ages 18+ and their families. The Relationship and Finance Workshop Series is aimed to support those already in a couple relationship, as well as, individuals who are currently not in a romantic relationship.
The FRAMEWorks program offers a 9-week virtual or in-person workshop series (18 hours) that provides education & individual coaching to help couples and singles learn practical finance and life skills to reduce stress & improve communication in order to be successful in all family dynamics and long term relationships.
Upon completion (18-hour series) participants receive a $100 GIFT CARD and extended learning opportunities: job readiness and parenting.
