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. 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 that assist 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 widows forum. The Hope for Widows PRIVATE Group for Women Only is the private group for widowed women only. Make sure to click on the link to friend us so we may add you to the group. We ask you to friend us first as we take the security of community seriously. The Public Facebook page showcases the organization and uplifting posts , consistent blogs and allows our community to reach widowed woman daily. Hope for Widows has connected with many woman 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, that often time individuals 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.
