Marriage & Family

Yuma offers every woman the opportunity to expand her knowledge, expertise and appreciation for her family and home.  Whether married or single, working outside the home or at home, taking care of the family and a home is a beautiful profession and the greatest service one can provide to society and the building up of civilization.
