In Friendships

​At Love Gives First, we believe it's important for every person and every relationship to grow.
That's why we provide resources and training events for anyone who wants to strengthen their relationship skills. 

​​​In fact, with all of the ways we can connect with the world, a large percentage of adults report feeling lonely much of the time. Loneliness is a bigger problem than simply an emotional experience.  Research shows that loneliness and social isolation are harmful to our health: lacking social connections is a comparable risk factor for early death as smoking 15 cigarettes a day, and is worse for us than well-known risk factors such as obesity and physical inactivity.

​​Love Gives First is committed to providing relevant resources, so that whether you've never been married, single again or just want to polish your relational skills, you'll find a place and the tools you need. You can begin to experience more of the true antidote for alone-ness: closeness and connection!
