The Marriage Resource Center of Frederick County was founded in 2005, and we help make FREDERICK STRONG!

Our Mission – FREDERICK STRONG! Building strong marriages, strong families, and strong communities in Frederick County, Maryland. 

Our Vision – FREDERICK STRONG! To be a beacon of hope in the Frederick Community by equipping and encouraging individuals and couples to develop strong relationships, lasting and Godly marriages.
