We help new widows navigate the harsh realities of life after loss.

When you don't know where to start, you start with us.


We give you wings to fly again.


I can't say enough about this wonderful organization. From beginning to end I felt like their highest priority. liane and Chris were  so sensitive to my grief and situation. They helped me through all the things I didn't know - things I never would have thought about. I miss Mark so much, but I know I'll be okay.

Sometimes you don't want to be disturbed. Easier to live in your own head. Other times you would give anything to talk to someone who understands what you're going through.

Our widow volunteers have walked in your shoes. Learn how we can help.
