Experts will help couples develop a plan and acquire tools and resources for building strong lives through financial planning, legal planning, a healthy lifestyle and home planning.

The program will comprise of weekly sessions from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturdays, beginning on March 3 and ending on April 14 at YWCA Central Massachusetts (1 Salem Square, Worcester, MA 01608).
