 Widowers’ Wellness Group

Our experience has shown that grief is an ongoing journey and it varies; for some it’s constant, others it’s intermittent and some are ambushed by unexpected bursts of anger, grief or fear. We invite YOU to attend a meeting and witness the camaraderie and healing that comes from “listening and unsolicited sharing” of the experiences of men like yourself who’ve lost their spouse.
The only requirement is being there and being willing to listen.
