There are many ways to expand knowledge and stay active in Waterloo, Wisconsin. Children can join in a variety of sporting events through the Waterloo Youth Sports Organization.1 Whether it is basketball, football, or volley ball, little ones can develop their coordination as well as learn how to work on a team. A stratus of discouragements when seeking employment can levy the financial foothold, initiating stress amongst a married couple, and thus mandating the expertise from a Christian marriage counsellor.  Do not let financial insecurities tax upon the companionship of your marital communion; let a couples therapist help discern economic tribulations from the intricate imminence you share as a couple. Families can go on outdoor excursions at Waterloo’s natural parks. Some offer camping facilities, such as Aztalan State Park, Big Bay State Park, and Amnicon Falls State Park. Devil’s Lake State Park is home to many stunning views as well as hiking and bicycle trails that cover more than 29 miles. Most of Devil’s Lake is welcome to pets, so bring your four legged friend along so the entire family can enjoy the day! Seasonal activities are also available in Waterloo, and include foliage observing and apple picking at one of the many orchards operating in the area.

Marriage and Couples Mental Health inWaterloo

The city of Waterloo is located in southern Ontario, Canada. It has over 60 square kilometers within its borders and is populated with around 98,000 people.2 The people who make their homes here are very involved in the community and the city is making constant improvements to the area. However, divorce rates are still somewhat higher in this area than they are when compared throughout all of Ontario.

It is estimated that close to 38% of marriages will end in divorce before the couple celebrates their 30th wedding anniversary.3 While these averages are still essentially average, it continues to be a concern for this area. Recent statistics also show that the average age for divorce was in the couple�s early forties. Divorces are often over financial problems, substance abuse, or mental health concerns�all of these are problems that can be solved and there are programs that can help you find the help that you need.

Family Services and Assistance Programs

Waterloo is a city that has many resources available to everyone. There are different family services and assistance programs that can help individuals, couples, and families who are struggling with a wide range of problems. There are counseling centers and support groups for those who face mental illness, rehabilitation for those who have drug problems, and many financial aid programs that can help families.4 The Food Bank of Waterloo Region is constantly making an effort to distribute food to those who are in need, and they distribute over 300 million pounds of food every year. You can contact them by phone at 519-743-5576.5
