Divorce Care

Group Name: Divorce Care – Support for Divorced and Separated Individuals

Description: DivorceCare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. Don’t go through separation or divorce alone. Most people will tell you that separation and divorce are the most painful and stressful experiences they have ever faced. It’s a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you have never faced before. Most people quickly feel comfortable and accepted in their DivorceCare group. They discover that there are others who have the same kind of feelings they do—and who understand the hurt and pain they are going through.

There is no registration fee. This is a confidential group dedicated to helping people recover from the emotional hit from divorce and separation. There is a handbook to be purchased for $15, however, no one will be turned away if they cannot afford the handbook.

Where: There are thousands of DivorceCare groups meeting weekly at locations around the world. There’s probably one near you! The DivorceCare program is designed so that you can join the group at any time. You will be welcomed and encouraged. Visit our locations page to find a group.
