Coming Together: A Support Group for Children of Divorce - Divorce can be a sad and stressful adjustment for children. Many children feel that they are the only ones in the world going through this monumental change. This group provides a safe place to express and normalize feelings about how their lives have changed as a result of divorce, provide support, develop problem solving skills and coping skills, and increase self-esteem.
Girl Talk! - A Support Group for Pre-teen Girls - Girls just want to have fun, but sometimes being a pre-teen and having fun is just not so easy.
