Our Mission, Vision and Values

Widowed Friends provides a safe, social atmosphere for widowed people to connect with each other after the loss of a spouse.


Widowed Friends helps support positive changes to the well being of widow and widowers in our communities through inclusion and friendship. We are not a grief support group, but focus on helping members regain their social connections after loss.

Core Values:

  • Provide a sense of belonging and connection to all our members.
  • Offer understanding and compassion towards their needs
  • Offer encouragement and support
  • Foster community partnerships
  • Provide responsible and accountable leadership
