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 is a support system for, and developed by widowed women. Our vision is to create a strong network of widows. We seek to empower our members through shared experience. 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 looking to assist widowed women, married or unmarried, who have lost their partner and are looking to find hope for a brighter day.
What we do
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 help comes from going through the same and similar loss, our hearts open and compassionate. We help each other to heal by telling our stories, and by being available to listen providing a group that listens. We encourage you to utilize any of the following:
This website provides a private Facebook group for widowed women. The widow Facebook group is a respite, where respectful sharing of feelings, experiences, and successes are encountered. We are careful to allow only widows into the widows forum. There are two Facebook groups for sharing and networking. The Hope for Widows Closed Group for Women Only is the private group for widowed women only. The Public Facebook page showcases the organization and uplifting posts and allows our community to reach widowed woman daily. Hope for Widows has connected with many woman worldwide through the power of social media. We have started offering live meet ups, so if you are not following us on our Facebook page, please consider so you can join in and participate with some awesome women.
In addition to the Facebook groups, Hope for Widows is excited to announce the release of an integrated application known as Slack for private instant messaging around the clock within our community for those who are on or want to share there. Slack will be a wonderful tool that allows us to create channels and specific topics that can easily be accessed.
Hope for Widows has partnered with Compassionate Courier to customize widow baskets that bring comfort, care and show support.
We are working to provide an annual conferences in addition to our current initiatives, consistent giveaways and meet ups facilitated by our community. Please continue to check our monthly initiatives listed on the website and promoted through the social media platforms.
