Within Our Reach (WOR) is designed to help couples with low-income achieve their goals in marriage, family, and relationships. The curriculum builds on the existing strengths of couples and adds critical life and relationship skills that will help participants create safer, more stable couple relationships, and by extension, better environments for their children.
WOR is designed to specifically meet the needs of couples with lower income and higher risks. This curriculum includes several new emphases such as helping couples to identify and plan for overcoming barriers to meeting their goals and discovering new ways to cope with the specific stressors of economic strain. There are units designed to foster a greater understanding among partners of each other's pasts, a focus on developing a vision and roadmap for the future, and a unit on the importance of developing or strengthening community connection and involvement.
