Divorce Care For Kids (DC4K) is a national program designed to help children heal from the hurt caused by the separation or divorce of their parents. In Wichita Falls, the program is organized through The Corner, a nonprofit, located at 1301 Tenth Street (10th and Broad).
DC4K sessions begin in September and January of each year. The DC4K group meets weekly on Monday evenings from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. for 13 weeks. The program is designed for children ages 5 – 12 years old.
The group allows children impacted by separation and divorce to interact and make friends with other kids going through the same experience. The program incorporates games, activities, music, and art to create an engaging, entertaining atmosphere children can go to and feel accepted.
