It began with one woman with a revolutionary idea: Without widow advocates, widows wouldn’t be served. Modern Widows Club is the embodiment of this vision — it is where widows go. We are grateful you have found us!

Carolyn Moor, humanitarian and mom, is the President, Founder and Development Director of Modern Widows Club. Widowed on Valentine’s Day 2000 and with two young daughters to raise solo. Carolyn struggled to find the mentors she needed to model the healing and growth she desperately sought. This ultimately led to the founding of Modern Widows Club in Carolyn’s very own living room in 2011.

I started with zero funds, and only a willingness to help lessen someone’s suffering.
— Carolyn Moor, MWC Founder
