When children and parents are trying to make sense of what has happened in their home as a result of divorce, separation, or death in the family, HomeBuilders can help. This 10 week class helps kids work through the anger and emotional pain and provides strategies to help them cope with their new family situation. We end with a party night to celebrate all that has been accomplished in this time.
Parents learn how to respond supportively towards their children in this period of adjustment.
