Who we are
The foundation of Hope for Widows is firmly embedded in the bedrock of experience. From its leaders to its newest member, Hope for Widows Foundation is a support system for and developed by widowed women. We seek to empower our members through shared experiences. We open the door to a new world for widows, ensuring they do not go through their experience alone, but with life-long connections and lasting support.
We are a non-denominational organization that assists widowed women, married or unmarried, who have lost their partner and are looking to find hope and light in their darkness.
What we do
Through our private online support, grief awareness initiatives, resources, incentives, and financial support we serve to offer caring advocacy and connection through the entire grieving process.
All of our programs are based on the concept of community-based support. We offer no formal counseling and do not have any therapists or counselors on staff. Our assistance comes from going through the same and similar loss.
We offer a private Facebook group for widowed women only. The widow private group is a respite, where respectful sharing of feelings, experiences, and successes are encountered. We are careful to allow only widows into the forum called: Hope for Widows PRIVATE Group for Women Only. Make sure to click on the link to friend us at our Foundation profile page so we may add you to the group. Additionally, we have a Public Facebook page that showcases the organization and uplifting posts, consistent blogs and allows our community to reach widowed women daily. Hope for Widows Foundation continues to connect many women worldwide through the power of social media.
Why specifically widows and not widowers?
It has been our experience that when we bring women and men together in a group setting, where individuals are at various stages in their grieving and emotions are high, they often time can become romantically involved which hinders the grieving process. We promote moving forward in your time, but we also value safety and keeping you at the heart and focus.
Our Logo Meaning:
The leaves represent each of us together, each woman widowed and that common connection. The hand represents Hope for Widows Foundation as a place of community where we come together, grow together and share our hearts, our pain, our joy, our triumphs supporting and uplifting each other through.
