History

Since its inception in 2014, Widow Care has focused on 4 core values: Compassion, Care, Community, and Restoration. We aim to offer support, friendship and resources to help widows and widowers cope with their trauma and connect with those around them. We do this because we believe the world should be a place where neighbors not only know one another, but build supportive relationships together regardless of their differences.

Our fundamental reason for believing in the necessity of this kind of community comes from James 1:27, which says “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” Though founded on Christian principles, we open our arms to people of all beliefs.

In the past, we have matched widows with volunteers, offered social events, and been a hub for information and referral. While Widow Care has experienced small shifts in its direction, our mission of restoring confidence, independence, and stability in the lives of widows and widowers has remained unwavering. We look forward to continuing our support of our constituents as they adjust to their new lives.
