Riverside 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.

Lisa C.

Lisa is a mother, author, and educator. On February 6th, 2010, her 7-year-old son found her husband/his father had passed away from a drug overdose; this shattered their world. Weeks later, she sold her home and moved across the country to North Carolina for support from her extended family. The people and nature of the south were instrumental in helping her heart heal.

After many years of supporting and helping widows work through their grief with induced afterlife communication, she committed to serving humanity through her community of widows. Her goal is to help widows nurture their gifts so they can strengthen their spirits and bring comfort to their aching hearts.
