We are Hope for Widows and we are here to help.

Hope for Widows is a national support system for, and developed by, widowed women. We help connect new widows with other widows to offer peer-to-peer support and other resources. By pairing new widows with women who have been where they are now, we help make connections that begin the healing process.

Through our peer support, resource section, initiatives and conferences we support widows through the entire grieving process.

Let us help you get started:
