The Alexander House:
The goal is to preserve the marriage covenant, build strong families and lower the divorce rate by helping individuals to discover the beauty and grandeur of the vocation to love and the service of life through marriage, family, church and community.
The Third Option:
We believe in the value of marriage and desire to promote its growth and reconciliation wherever necessary and possible. We believe many more marriages could thrive with preventive or crisis intervention. We believe marriage partners from time to time need to ask for help and support and that to do so is a sign of strength, not weakness.
