DC4K - DivorceCare for Kids - Support Group

Help your children heal from the pain of divorce

Some children struggle deeply with the separation and divorce, while others seem to bounce back quickly. In the long run, all children are affected. DC4K will help minimize and eliminate the short- and long-term negative effects of divorce on your children’s schoolwork, emotional health, and spiritual life.

Are your children angry, hurt, and confused about your divorce? Finding help for your children can be frustrating.
DivorceCare for Kids (DC4K) provides a safe, fun place where your children will:

  • Learn to understand their feelings
  • Express their emotions appropriately
  • Feel better about themselves
  • Develop coping skills
  • Be introduced to biblical concepts that will bring comfort

Will my children be safe:

Yes, absolutely.  Strict security measures are in place and all interactions with your children are done under the auspices of a social worker.


Children of school going age from Grade 1 to   6.  (Ages 7 to 12)

More about DivorceCare for Kids

As your children begin to heal from the pain and confusion, their relationships with you, God, and others will grow healthy and strong.

Children meet other kids who understand how they feel

Children experiencing divorce tell us they feel alone and helpless. Your children may feel scared, sad, and confused. They may hide their feelings from you because they are worried about your happiness or because they do not know how to express their feelings appropriately.

What is DC4K?

DC4K is a special group to help your children heal from the pain caused by a separation or divorce. DC4K provides your children with a safe and neutral place to recognize and learn to share their feelings.

For 13 weeks your children become involved in a fun, caring group at a church near you. The weekly session topicshelp your children learn that God’s love strengthens them and helps them turn their sadness to hope and their anger to joy.

Each session is filled with motivating and exciting activities. Games, crafts, role playing, discussion times, journaling, and Activity Books help your children process the divorce and move forward in their lives. The music CDs, snacks, read aloud stories, exercises, and Bible verses teach your children to relax and rest secure in God’s love. The Kids Like Meand Stories from the Bible video dramas present stories of children just like your children, who are experiencing divorce-related problems and have found help and encouragement.

DC4K is a powerful ministry for kids 7–12 years of age.

Children look forward to each time their “DC4K family” gets together. Your children can be part of a DC4K family. Start your children on the road to healing today!
