Active Relationships at the Herring House

By At Risk Coordinator Kris Doss. Recently I started facilitating an Active Relationships class to a group of 12 men at the Herring House. The men in the class were from different parts of the state. The class had many lively personalities which allowed for a lot of discussion of past relationships. One gentleman who stood out was a former resident of Birmingham. He said that the class made him look at himself differently. During the class he understood that to have a healthy relationship you must know who you are first. He and his wife now rent a house here in the Wiregrass and are very optimistic about their future as a married couple. Another thing that came out of the class was helping the participants clearly recognize that they are valuable. This helped because most of the men came from a broken background. Reaffirming their position established hope for their lives and family lives. I now have started a new class with about 11 participants and the number will continue to grow. My hope is that this class will enrich the lives of the men and their families.
