“I’m scared. I just lost the one person in the world I trusted. The love of my life – my entire support system – is gone. I know my world has changed forever, but I can’t grasp what that all means. I’m so sad and life is so uncertain, but I can’t grieve right now. I have children and must be strong. I know I have many administrative and financial things to do. I’ve seen the lists of what I’m supposed to do, but nobody tells you how to do it. Where do I even start? I need advice I can trust, but I don’t know where to get it. I feel so alone. It’s all just so overwhelming.”
Sound familiar? If there were ever a time in your life you needed to ask for help, it might be now.
I am so glad I reached out. They helped me to wrap my arms around the enormity of my situation and move forward with confidence. I can’t thank them enough. Such a great resource!

Volunteering the past three years with Wings for Widows has helped me move forward in many ways. It is so rewarding helping those who are now walking the path that I’ve been on. I’ve had several roles in the organization, which has helped me learn and grow. And as I move forward, my passion and work are helping move a necessary organization forward. I enjoy the people I work with, because everyone has a heart for our mission and the community we serve.
