What is Relationship Central?
- How can we be happily married to the same person for a lifetime?
- How do engaged couples create good, solid foundations for marriage?
- What’s involved in being a good parent of toddlers and teenagers?
These and many more questions are answered by Relationship Central’s courses and resources. Our aim is to provide practical, relevant help to parents, couples and individuals in different areas of family life and relationships.
In Canada, Relationship Central comes under the umbrella of Alpha Canada with direction from Elaine Young, Canadian Director. She can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org or see more information on our Team page.
