Register now for our Festival of Hope

We are delighted to share with you a new program designed to walk with our widowed community through all of the end-of-year rituals, holidays, and experiences that are a traditional part of ending one year and beginning a new one.  Registration is open now, FREE of charge, and available to anyone who would benefit from this type of support.

New Website Coming!

Our new Widowed Village web site will be launching very soon. Unfortunately, we won't be able to transfer everything over to the new site, so please take some time to see if there are photos or posts you'd like to save and capture them now. We'll let you know ahead of time when we have a firm launch date.
