CRE awarded $724k Grant to Support Marriages

The Center for Relationship Enrichment at JBU, founded in 1998, has been awarded a grant in the amount of $724K to support marriages over the next three years. Located in Northwest Arkansas, it is at the hub of a state that has one of the highest divorce rates in the country.

“This significant grant is for a very specific focus and will help enhance only part of the much broader ministries of the CRE,” said Dr. Gary Oliver. “A particular focus of this grant is to target families that have received or are receiving Temporary Assistance For Needy Families (TANF) assistance and other low-income and at-risk families and individuals, including high school dropouts, non-custodial and other single parents and veterans.”
