The National Widowers' Organization and Wings for Widows Announce a New Collaboration

By: PRLog

The National Widowers' Organization and Wings for Widows are collaborating to bring expanded resources to grieving men. Both organizations, recognizing there are scant resources available to men seeking support, have joined to help grieving men.

MARTHA'S VINEYARD, Mass. - March 14, 2023 - PRLog -- The National Widowers' Organization, formed in 2009, identified men suffering the loss of loved ones were being left without support.  In 2018, Wings for Widows was organized as the first and only organization of its kind in the United States to help widowed individuals deal with financial issues.  Both 501(c)3 non-profits provide free services through their internet portals to men seeking help.

Dr. Sherry R. Schachter, president of the National Widowers' Organization, said of the new collaboration, "Wings for Widows offers a set of resources and support for men in grief that we could not provide on our own.  Often, men who are serving as care givers disregard finances and get into difficulty.  Similar challenges face widowed fathers raising children alone. We know Wings for Widows can help in these situations to guide men to financial wellness. I'm looking forward to working with the team at Wings for Widows to develop new programs in the future to help address the unique needs of men."

Chris Bentley, founder and president of Wings for Widows, explains, "We help newly widowed men and women navigate the financial trauma of loss.  With our compassionate volunteers, we guide clients through new widowhood, empowering them to make sound financial choices for themselves and their families in the future.  It's important that widowers are aware these services exist. It's even more important that they optimize their situation by using the help and services that are available."

The National Widowers' Organization and their Men's Grief Network project is led by experts in loss, many of whom are widowers, and others who have grieved significant deaths. They offer, free resources including articles, blogs, books, podcasts, webinars, and more to help men during this very difficult time and beyond. Men do not have to go through a loss alone, whether it be the loss of a significant other, children, grandchildren, parents, or siblings. Connect with the National Widowers Organization and the Men's Grief Network to find out how to help those who are grieving. Contact them at:
