Winston-Salem, North Carolina
For 46 years, we have supported couples as they seek to develop strong, healthy relationships. In recent years we have focused our efforts on couples age 55+. As a membership organization, approximately 86.4% of our members are over the age of 55. Of those, 53.1% have been members for more than 20 years. 77.4% state that the number reason they are members is that they continue to learn relationship skills that strengthen their relationships. We do this through workshops, conferences, and retreats. As our membership ages, we have more widows and widowers who are looking for ways to stay connected to the organization. They still have a lot to offer! Some are serving as mentors to younger couples, some are "on call" to help deal with relational crises, and some are writing regular articles to share their experience and expertise.
