Widows Of Substance

Widows of Substance

Widows of Substance provides a support system for widows. Our vision is to create a strong network of widows. We seek to empower our members through shared experiences. We open the door to a new world for widows, ensuring they do not go through their experience alone, but with life-long connections and lasting support.

Our non-denominational organization looks to assist widowed women, married or unmarried, who have lost their partner and are looking to find hope for a brighter day.
