Financial Coaching Program

• We recognize the impact financial stress can have on the administrative side of loss. Financial wellness is priority

one, even before grieving and healing. We provide financial coaching by pro bono Certified Financial Planner™

professionals to help new widows manage through the financial confusion and, in many cases, hardship of early


Widow Services Program

• At some point, widows must deal with the pain and grief that does not go away. That’s why we offer Grief

Explorations, our six-week course to help widows and widowers understand themselves and heal in a nurturing

place, with others who’ve experienced the same sort of loss.

• Our focus has always been on helping our clients build new confidence, so we also offer Enrichment Classes that

focus on growth, improving life, helping them thrive and develop new dreams and renewed hope. These in-depth,

4- to 6-week classes allow plenty of time to learn and take practical steps into future possibilities.

• Twice a month, we invite widows of all ages and backgrounds, in a virtual community, to discuss timely topics

presented by national experts and leaders serving the greater widow community. Arise: A Widows’ Forum is an

hour-long mini seminar where we dive into a specific issue that particularly affects the health and wellbeing of

grieving people.

• Finally, we understand the widowhood experience firsthand. Many of our volunteers are widows who are walking

that same path. We all need to be seen, to be heard, to be known, to be understood, to feel worthy, and to be

loved. No one “gets it” like someone who has experienced it, so we make those connections. Our story is their

story, and we want them to know they don’t have to live it alone; we are their “wisters” (widow sisters).
