Welcome to Divorce and Relationship Recovery San Francisco. This is one of several no-charge, weekly information/support communities intended for anyone dealing with separation, divorce, or other relationship challenges or losses.

After meeting since our San Fransisco launch location at Temple Baptist Church on 19th Ave., we are now "on the move." Please see the our Meetup home page http://www.meetup.com/DRR-SF-Stonestown for the location of this week's meeting.

We meet each Sunday from 4:00 to 6:00 pm (and yes, we've changed from our original start time of 1:00pm).

During the first part of each weekly meeting, we view a video or hear from a guest speaker on some topic related to the divorce/separation/loss experience. The second part of each meeting includes supportive, confidential smaller group time, to reflect on what we've learned and what we're dealing with.

We help people through the emotional, spiritual, psychological, legal, financial, health and child-related issues related to divorce and broken relationships. We welcome everyone, without regard to circumstances, timeline or faith background.

We use many of the same materials as in our other communities, including books and videos from psychologists Dr. Henry Cloud and John Townsend ("Boundaries," "Changes that Heal." "Safe People"), Andy Stanley ("Starting Over," "The New Rules for Love, Sex and Dating") and other experts. Between these and other video series, live speakers will include psychologists, therapists, and attorneys presenting practical, actionable information to heal and begin putting your life together again.

There are no fees or registration or membership requirements. With a free Meetup account, you are welcome to join our online group, which will provide additional information about our group and our events. We hope to see you soon at one of our meetings!

We do appreciate donations to the non-profit Divorce and Relationship Recovery Network which operates these groups. Our operating budget amounts to about $10 per attendee per week, and we hope you will gove what you can. Cash gifts and checks are gratefully accepted at our meetings, and you can also set up an online recurring gift (which we especially appreciate), or make a one-time donation, here (https://divorceandrelationshiprecovery.networkforgood.com/projects/24066).
