Our Widowed Pen Pal Program will match you with another widowed person for one-on-one supportive e-mail correspondence. The Program was designed for those who would rather correspond with one person consistently than join a group forum. You will be connected with up to three other widowed people of the same gender who are within ten years of yourself in age, have lost their spouse or partner within six months of your loss, and who have the same parenting status as you.
If you're already a member of Widowed Village:
You had an opportunity to request a pen pal when you applied to join Widowed Village – and if you have a green check-mark on your profile picture, that means you are in the program.
If you said ‘no’ when you first joined us but would now like to request a pen pal, just go to your My Widville page and change your answer to ‘yes’ on the pen pal question. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the page and click on SAVE.
If you haven't yet joined Widowed Village and would like a pen pal:
Your first step is to Sign Up! Our process for matching pen pals includes verification of widowhood, which occurs with your request to join Widowed Village. This is our way of ensuring, to the best of our ability, that the people being served by our programs are actually widowed. Soaring Spirits Widowed Pen Pal Program
