Marriage Matters Jackson's vision is to Promote, Prepare & Preserve Healthy Marriages. Our mission is to strengthen marriages and families, decrease divorce, and measurably impact Jackson County and its economy by supporting proven strategies to:
Communicate the importance of healthy marriage,
Connect the community to marriage enrichment and pre-marital resources
Collaborate with community leaders and organizations.
Marriage Matters Jackson is housed at the United Way of Jackson County and funded by the Weatherwax Foundation. Through the acquisition of a federally funded grant Marriage Matters Jackson is furthering efforts to bring marriage enrichment programs to the community. Currently Marriage Matters Jackson is rallying its efforts around the establishment of a Healthy Marriage Agreement, which promotes marriage preparation, growth for existing marriages, and restoration for troubled marriages.
