The end of a marriage is hard. You may have realized that your current life is not what you want. Your spouse may have just “dropped the bomb” that they don’t want to be married any more. Or you may have just reached the limit of how much of a bad relationship you can endure. Perhaps you are coping with the death of your partner or spouse, ending a same sex partnership or long term relationship. Everyone here has a different story, but all are linked by the common need to figure out how to get through the process. Your life will be very different and the emotions can be overwhelming. Family, friends, neighbors and coworkers may not be able to relate, even if they want to be supportive. And navigating the legal process may be one of the most expensive learning experiences you have in your life – where do you even start that process?

DSSG was created to connect those who are going through the struggles of coping with separation and divorce. But this is not group therapy, it’s a social mechanism to find others that are going through the same thing you are. We are a welcoming, inclusive, warm and a fun group of people; an instant cadre of friends who know what it’s like to have your life turned upside down!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
