Family Enrichment provides programs for couples geared to strengthening the family and supporting the husband and wife by fostering learning opportunities within an atmosphere of friendship.
Family Enrichment courses are built on the case-study method. Cases are drawn from rich, complex family situations that reveal the significance of productive relationships among family members.
The Grandmother's Exchange was started by two women who wanted to get to know other grandmothers and share friendship. The group meets in the Buffalo Grove area and surrounding communities, depending on which home will be hosting.
