We are an outreach volunteer service that provides both support and guidance to newly widowed men and women. Our volunteers are trained and also widowed for at least two years.

This organization is sponsored by aarp, elderplan, and the brooklyn hospic, as well as affiliated neighborhood organizations.

We meet one on one with the newly widowed either at their home or a diner or mall. Sometimes contacts are made only with phone calls.

Often the newly widowed are so overwhelmed with their grief that they wish to talk to someone else who has lost their spouse. Only someone who is widowed can truly understand what the newly widowed person's grief feels like and what they are going through.

In addition to the one on one meetings, we have a support group for widowed women under 55.
