Overview

Tallahassee, FL is where Live the Life started back in 1998 with a mission to strengthen marriages and families. From very humble beginnings our Board, staff and volunteers have witnessed firsthand the dramatic transformation of countless lives through our work. Hundreds of high school boys have gone through our Champions program teaching the roadmap to manhood. Thousands of middle school and high school students have learned the critical “sequence of success” for the best life outcomes: 1) get educated, 2) get a job, 3) get married, 4) and then have children! And tens of thousands of children are growing up and living in homes with both parents because of our relationship and marriage education programs. No matter how much impact we have had over the years, we are not satisfied! We have never been more passionate to teach people how to love well. (850) 668-3700 to call our Tallahassee staff.

Live the Life's Strategic Vision

The goals to transform each community we serve are bold and simple:

1. Reduce the divorce rate

2. Increase the marriage rate

3. Reduce out of wedlock births

4. Increase church attendance

Core Strategic Plan to transform communities

After doing this work for more than 20 years, we believe the core building blocks required to achieve our strategic goals are:

1) Increase the SUPPLY of Relationship and Marriage Education as a strategic evangelism tool based on a shared VISION for strong marriages and families

2) Increase the DEMAND for Relationship and Marriage Education

3) Provide a Website Clearinghouse of Relationship and Marriage Education tools and resources available in each community we serve. This is the place where INCREASED SUPPLY meets INCREASED DEMAND

4) Provide increased SUPPORT for individuals and couples through expanding “Circles of Care”

5) Provide Consulting/Implementation Assistance to assist Faith-based organizations and Community-based organizations to implement Relationship and Marriage Education program SKILLS in their environment

6) Provide Outcome Evaluation to measure the effectiveness of our strategic plan
