Wings for Widows provides financial coaching and education to help new widows manage the short-term financial hardship of widowhood. We recognize the impact financial stress and instability can have with grieving and healing. Our clients receive personal, virtual coaching from a pro bono CFP professional to help them gain confidence and control of their financial wellness. We are the first and only organization of our kind in the United States and do not charge for our services.
