DivorceCare 4 Kids

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, nearly 10 million children in America today live with a single parent as a result of separation and divorce.1  In The Divorce CultureBarbara Dafoe Whitehead states, "A mounting body of evidence from diverse and multiple sources shows that divorce has been a primary generator of new forms of inequality, disadvantage, and loss for American children.  It has spawned a generation of angry and bereaved children who have a harder time learning, staying in school, and achieving at high levels.  High and sustained levels of divorce have also raided children's piggy banks, depriving them of the full resources that they might have had growing up in an intact family." 2

DivorceCare 4 Kids (DC4K) is a divorce recovery ministry for children ages 5 - 12.  The 13-week program (see session schedule) is designed to work in conjunction with DivorceCare for adults.  DC4K combines videos, games, music, crafts and activities to create a warm, caring environment for children of divorce.  This is a powerful and effective ministry to hurting kids.  Facilitating these meetings is Mrs. Christy Donaldson, who has experienced and recovered from the trauma of being the eldest child of separation and divorce.  The total cost for the entire 13 week program is only $25.00 and includes a workbook for the children to keep.
