Welcome to The National Widowers’ Organization
The National Widowers’ Organization is a virtual toolkit for men coping with the loss of a loved one, a place where men can meet others going through the same transition.
There are a lot of things men suffer alone. That’s part of our DNA. We find great personal satisfaction in accomplishing on our own, independently. We famously won’t ask for directions, won’t admit when we are lost – we prefer to find our own way home. And eventually we do. Most of the time. And that’s fine; that’s our way. But, as new and continuing research shows, there’s one loss that men could use a little help from their friends to cope with. That’s the loss of a spouse or a lover or a parent or a child or a lifelong friend. And it’s often help that only other men can provide. Because we understand, many times without saying the words, where you’re at, how you got there and even why.
