Our VISION

As a united force, we intend to transform the pain and suffering of millions of juvenile and adult children of divorce into one loud voice.  Our aim is to speak out on behalf of the daily 4,000 new children of divorce in the USA who have no say.  During this most crucial time, these victims remain powerless as decisions are made that will affect the rest of their lives. This decision: whether or not their parents stay together, has a great impact on the outcome of each child’s life – one that isn’t always seen.


One generation plants the trees, and another gets the shade.
