If you’ve experienced the death of a spouse or partner due to COVID-19, you are in our hearts as you navigate this tremendously difficult time.
Soaring Spirits’ mission is to provide programs, resources and a community of support for widowed people. Though this global health crisis has altered some of our program offerings, this disease won’t stop us from offering you vital access to comfort, support and understanding from people who have also experienced the death of their person, and find themselves trying to pick up the pieces of the life they used to live.
This page includes videos and documents for those widowed by COVID-19. We are also offering information about trauma as we recognize the special circumstances that add to the pain with which you are living right now.
In Soaring Spirits you’ve found a community of people willing to walk with you through all the days ahead. Widowed people are our first priority. Please know that we are here for you right now, and will continue to provide resources, community and support as you make your way forward one small step at a time.

Pen Pal Program
Our Widowed Pen Pal program has the ability to match you with another person widowed by COVID-19 for one-on-one supportive e-mail correspondence. This program will also connect you with up to three other widowed people (of the same identifying gender) who are within ten years of yourself in age, have lost their spouse or partner within six months of your loss, or who have the same parenting status as you do in addition to loss type. You can sign up for a pen pal when submitting a free application to join widowed village here.
