CHR Name Change Announcement
The Center for Healthy Relationships explains their recent name change.
Derek Gwinn: The Center for Relationship Enrichment at John Brown University is announcing that we're changing our name to the Center for Healthy Relationships.
Stew Grant: In 1998, what is now the Center for Healthy Relationships was established on the campus of John Brown University to provide real help and real hope in the form of a relationship related education and enrichment.
Dr. Gary Oliver: Everything that we do here at the center is about helping people develop strong, healthy, vital and vibrant relationships. So while our name has changed our mission, our goal, our passion, our commitment is stronger than ever.
Stew Grant: Since its beginning, CHR has conducted more than 1500 special events, community workshops, and classes that have impacted more than 35,000 people locally and nationwide. Everything we do at the Center for Healthy Relationships is designed to increase hope and to help people become more relationally affective at home, at work, and in all of their relationships. Our new name more clearly communicates who we are and what we do to a broader range of people.
Derek Gwinn: The vision of CHR is inclusive. From those who live in generational poverty to the highly successful. From high school students to senior citizens. From alternatives schools to Universities. From prisons to the corporate training center. We have researched based strategies, programs and workshops that make a measurable improvement in the lives of our participants. And we provide resources and scholarships to help some of those who might not otherwise be able to attend.
Stew Grant: The good news for Northwest Arkansas is that the Center for Healthy Relationships is making and will continue to make a significant difference in our community.
Dr. Gary Oliver: Our name is our mission and our mission is our name. We are all about healthy relationships and now we are the Center for Healthy Relationships.
