divorcecare for kids
DivorceCare for Kids (DC4K) is a weekly group to help children, ages 5-12, heal from the hurt that comes from the separation or divorce of their parents. Through the use of games, crafts, videos, music, puppets, exercise, stories, and activities, children learn to process the breakup of their once intact family.
This program runs concurrently with DivorceCare, and we ask that the parent is attending DivorceCare at the same time that their children are attending DC4K. Once the parent has registered for DivorceCare, they will be sent a link to register their child(ren) for DC4K.
Cost is $15 per child, and scholarships are available. If you are a grandparent, foster parent or other family member who would like to register a child for DC4K, please contact Cristal Fabrizio at cfabrizio@highlandschurch.
