Best Practices in Strengthening Marriage, Family and Relationships as a Foundation to Resilient Communities

Purpose Built Families builds on PAIRS Foundation's quarter century of experiencce teaching the attitudes, emotional understandings, and behaviors that nurture and sustain healthy relationships and making this knowledge broadly available on behalf of a safer, saner, more loving world. Purpose Built Families builds on this longstanding mission by actively involving leadership of local schools, housing communities, employers, law enforcement, and faith-based programs in support of our ultimate goal of comprehensive community wellness that is sustainable and replicable as a foundation for America’s children and families to pursue the promise and potential of their lives.

"My husband and I came to this retreat looking for a solution for our problems. We've been through a lot and practically we weren't able to address the issues because we had so much anger build between us that we couldn't even talk about what were our feelings. Here, these wonderful people helped us to take the first step towards the resolution of our problems. They gave us several tools to use that my husband and I committed to use in order to have the life we wanted since we said 'I do.' We actually had an argument, a fight during the retreat and they were so kind, patient and helpful.They went to our room and spoke to us. They guided us through the tool's instructions we were learning at the seminar and definitely gave us so much hope. This experience was what we needed, it is what I needed, to help my relationship to gain the confidence that my husband is my partner in crime, not my enemy. Thank for everything you have done for us."
