New York Metro Community and Support Group for Widows

Our Mission for Widows

We serve to empower widows to lean into life, build resilience and make a positive difference in society.

Modern Widows Club is designed to create a safe and private environment for widows to lean into life together through the journey.

We are the club no one wants to be in because you only get in by virtue of experiencing a great loss. Yet what I hope you find once you’re here is that you’re surrounded by a community of really amazing women that you can lean on and learn from. We’re widows helping widows to live- to go upward and onward. Sometimes we cry and sometimes we laugh. We talk about how to tackle challenges without our partners’ help and cheer each other on. We often share food as we do this, because who doesn’t like to eat?

When a woman loses her loved one she tends to feel very alone. Regardless of her age or circumstances, she will benefit from other women in her life who understand the unique challenges she is now faced with. She needs women who will build her up and encourage her in this new life she walks. We are stronger together. No woman is an island. We need each other.

Welcome to Modern Widows Club New York Community. Thank you for taking the initial step to join us.  Although we are not a grief counseling group, we will provide you with the support to heal, find hope, grow in your widowhood journey and lead others as a reflection of your resilience. We want you to know you are in a safe place with others who have experienced similar loss. All initial members will be asked to answer a few questions. This screening protocol is in place to protect your privacy. At Modern Widows Club, we believe you will find comfort, strength and inspiration from camaraderie with other widows. We know that empowerment will be the key to your success. We want you to thrive and flourish in all areas of your life. In this Facebook Group, you are encouraged to share photos, voice your suggestions/recommendations, post events and mentor others. Please feel free to connect with all programs, services, and clubs Modern Widows Club has to offer.
