    Divorced?  Separated?  We can help.  Find help.  Discover hope.  Experience healing.  DivorceCare helps you recover from the pain of separation and divorce.  DivorceCare is a support group that meets weekly.  You'll find a warm, caring environment and will come to see your group as an oasis in an otherwise difficult season of life.  There are three key elements to your DivorceCare experience: video seminar, group discussion and personal workbook.

    Unless you've been there it's hard to understand the hurt that comes from separation and divorce.  That's why many of your friends and family don't fully understand what you are going through and don't know how to best help you.

    We do.  DivorceCare groups are led by people who have been through divorce and successfully rebuilt their lives.  We understand how you feel because we've been in the same place.  We'll show you how to deal with the hurt caused by your separation and divorce.

    DivorceCare is a network of 13,000+ churches worldwide equipped to offer divorce support groups.  The program is non-demonominational and features biblical teaching for recovering from divorce or separation.  Learn more about DivorceCare at www.divorcecare.org   Join our Meetup group to keep posted on our meeting calendar www.meetup.com/Downtown-Boston-Divorced-and-Separated/
