  • Fun, engaging events. We offer many events to choose from each month, from big mixers to intimate gatherings.  Kayaking, hiking, game nights, cooking classes.  Well curated, awesome.
  • Amazing membership.  A breath of fresh air – real people, really interesting.
  • A high quality service from real people. Local Flames staff includes a Ph.D. and master’s level psychologists and certified relationship and wellness coaches. Our staff are skilled and love what we do.
  • Personal liaison. Each member is paired up with one of our personal liaison so you always have someone on your side.
