Flourishing Families Program for Single Parents

Flourishing Families - Register Now - Refer Someone

We work in partnership with dozens of community agencies, nonprofit groups, schools, colleges and faith-based organizations. They refer parents and couples to us because they recognize the benefits of our programs.  We can build stronger communities by building stronger families.

Kids don’t come with an instruction manual – we’ve all heard this before and training options for parents aren’t always accessible. Enter the Relationship Skills Center. Research shows that how parents communicate with their children as well as how they select and pursue new romantic relationships are important indicators of how well children do throughout their lifetime. 

Flourishing Families Relationship Skills Training is offered at no charge. Classes start continually throughout the Sacramento area to serve participants at convenient times and locations. Contact Relationship Skills Center at info@skillscenter.org or call 916-362-1900 for registration details.
