The Dibble Institute equips young people with the skills and knowledge they need to develop healthy romantic relationships now and in the future. Dibble programs have reached over 100,000 students in all 50 states and are used in public and private schools, after school programs, community youth programs, youth agencies, health clinics, juvenile and justice locations. They have consulted with The Brookings Institute, RAND, The Urban Institute, The Institute for American Values, and The National Healthy Marriage Resource Center. In addition their grants/funding partners include the US Dept. of Health and Human Services, Anne E. Casey Foundation and the departments of education in Ohio, Indiana, North Carolina, Washington, Virginia and Texas. Because money plays a major role in youth relationships, Dibble developed a separate curriculum called Money Habitudes: How to be rich in love and life for teens. It can be used in conjunction with financial literacy programs as well as in life skills programs and classes in psychology and business.

One of the largest fraternal benefit societies with open membership in the United States, Woodmen of the World Life Insurance Society was founded in Omaha, NE, more than 120 years ago to provide life insurance protection to members. As an extension of its long history of being committed to local communities through volunteer activities, donations and educational programs, the organization has launched Accessory to Success, an innovative financial educational program for women. Following a successful pilot, Money Habitudes™ was included as a key piece of the program. The cards proved to be an effective way to start conversations and help women become aware of the financial consequences (often unintended) of their habits and attitudes toward money. Additionally, playing with cards helped set the right tone at fun, informal, non-threatening home events.
