ACOD: Adult Children of Divorce

ACOD with FamilyKind offers a Support Group for those who were over the age of 18 when their parents divorced.

The ACOD committee of FamilyKind has formed to help identify and increase awareness of the impact of divorce on adult children. The committee was created to provide resources and programs that foster resilience and recognition of those impacts in order to empower adult children of divorce.  We offer support groups throughout the year.
