Program 2

Monthly support Groups

This support group is run by a Professionally Trained Group Facilitator who has extensive experience with individuals contemplating or facing issues of separation, divorce, and/or co-parenting issues. This particular group is women only and there is no cost to attend or other attendance requirements.

We encourage individuals to attend at least one session and to come as often as is needed and at any time during their personal journeys. Individuals attend who are facing and sometmes struggling with issues such as questioning the ability to save the marriage, the hurt of broken promises, the fear of uncertain times to come, and the desire to protect the family’s future (who often are very young) and to address the realities of co-parenting.

As individuals face the emotional ordeal of divorce, professional mental health care is ever important and sometimes intimidating to access. Visions Anew facilitates these groups to assist individuals in caring for themelves and to help pinpoint what kind of therapist would be helpful to them. Take care by attending a session.

Divorce Survival Weekend Retreat

Over the course of 15 years more than 800 women have experienced the hope and healing that brings transformation in their lives.

Divorce is both a business and an emotion, both need to be addressed. At the weekend we combine education and information from divorce professionals, as well as activities that address the deeply emotional side of divorce.

No one wants a divorce, but when it is happening, having the best information, and the best support system will make the journey just a bit easier.
