We develop relationship skills curricula, train facilitators and teach classes for singles, couples, families and youth to promote personal growth, healthy relationships and success in the workplace.
Active Relationships Center began as a counseling center and later developed curricula and began to offer facilitator trainings and educational classes directly for singles, couples, youth and families.
ARC initiated the Alliance for North Texas Healthy and Effective Marriages Healthy Marriage Initiative in Dallas, Texas and also piloted the Hispanic Active Relationships Project in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. ARC successfully obtained federal grants from the Compassion Capital Fund and DHHS’s Office of Family Assistance on behalf of relationship wellness skills in Texas, in both Dallas County and Cameron County.
ARC is honored to work closely with the United States Armed Forces
Military family retreats were initiated in 2003. Since 2003, ARC has conducted retreats and certification trainings for the Army, Air Force, Guard and Reserves.
