Ohio Divorce Support Groups

You're having a rough time handling your separation or divorce. Your family and friends are naturally sympathetic. Initially that's ok, but eventually you are going to want or need more support than that. You may choose to seek therapy, and that's a good option. Sometimes you may need just to talk to someone who is in the same situation as you. Your answer might be with a support group. Various organizations have support groups for separated and divorced people. Some are religious, others are non sectarian. Some are social, others are emotional. These groups can be a good place to find support, compassion and companionship from people who know first hand what you're going through. One word of caution concerning support groups, they are not therapists, and everybody's situation is different. They should be there to offer support, not advice. Always get your advice from an attorney.

Cleveland Divorce Support Groups
Divorce Care / Divorce Care for Kids
4004 Cypress Ave.
Cleveland, OH 44109

We meet every Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. Why Divorce Care For Kids? Did you know that over 30% of all children in Ohio live in a single parent home? Divorce leaves them hurting, confused and isolated. The experience for them is very traumatic and causes pain that lasts for months and even years. It affects their home life, school life, social life and even their future work and family life. Divorce Care: Most people will tell you that separation and divorce are the most painful and stressful experiences they've ever faced. It's a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you've never faced before. Divorce Care meets weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.
