There are over 11 million widows in this country and there are very limited programs and services available to them. The W Connection is making an important difference in the lives of this large segment of our population. The W Connection provides widows with a one stop internet based resource center and a national network of community based chapters.
The W Connection is one of the first not for profits run exclusively by widows for the support of widows. The W Connection is unique because, unlike other organizations that just deal with grief, this organization helps to take women beyond the initial stages of bereavement. Our goal is to provide education, information, and emotional support to empower widows to move their lives forward in a positive way for themselves and for their children.
