National Widowers’ Organization Announces New Program
The National Widowers’ Organization announces “Widower to Widower” a peer-based contact program for widowers.
Most widowers who have met others that also experienced the loss of their wife can attest to the power of this shared connection. It is often another widower who can recommend a book, connect someone to a support group or another resource, or simply provide reassurance.
Recognizing a need to help widowers who cannot find or access a men’s support group the National Widowers’ Organization is launching a peer-to-peer service for sharing experiences.
The Widower to Widower program is not intended to be therapy but relies on volunteer widowers who are interested in contact with another widower. Once connected these widowers can share experiences, listen with compassion, offer reassurance that surviving the death of a wife is possible, and recommend helpful things to do that ease the adjustment to a new life.
Widowers wishing to take advantage of the program simply contact the National Widowers’ Organization through their website www.nationalwidowers.org and complete a contact request on the “Widower to Widower” webpage. The program is free.
The National Widowers’ Organization is dedicated to understanding and promoting support for widowers and their families through public awareness, education, research, and advocacy.
