Embrace Change

Connect, learn, explore, enjoy and live with purpose.

Upcoming or current empty nesters may find it challenging to imagine or experience their life without children at home. Transitioning with Embrace Change provides opportunities for parents and caregivers to connect, design and redefine this new stage of life. From our interactive programming, parents will learn a fresh way of living that embraces and promotes the positive aspects of life as an empty nester. Members’ resources offer experiences to help parents expand their horizons, live with purpose and discover what comes next in this stage of life.

“Embrace Change” opened my eyes to the many wonderful aspects of this new phase of my life.  I left with a feeling of renewal, purpose, and a direction that I did not have before.  This program will change your outlook for the rest of your life. ~Susan H
