Widows/Widowers Support Group in Tucson, AZ

If you have lost your spouse and want to talk to others who are going through the same experience, our Widows/Widowers support group can help you get through this difficult time. We are here to provide a welcoming environment where you can share your thoughts, feelings and experiences. We have found that hearing others talk about their difficulties often help us, even if we don't share the same experience.

Widows/Widowers Support Group, Inc. is not a 12-step program nor does it provide therapy. Instead, we offer support by providing a safe place to talk about the issues you may be facing. Everything that happens in this group is confidential.

Members of our group are all widows and widowers who understand what you are going through. No matter what stage of grief you are experiencing, we are here to help you.

Groups meet at various times and places around Tucson, Arizona and are facilitated by fellow widowed people who share your experience.

To better accommodate people with different schedules and need of different meeting locations, we have various meeting times and locations. We are happy to create new groups and meeting times.

Widows/Widowers support group is an all-volunteer non-profit organization that is not affiliated with any religious institution. It was founded by Genevieve Ginsburg to offer a place for all widows and widowers to be with others who have lost a spouse.

Mission Statement:
We are a network of committed support groups composed of widows and widowers, resolved to create and provide a compassionate and safe environment for individuals who have lost a spouse.

This environment supports and encourages each individual's unique path through healing from their loss. We are especially sensitive to the bereaved. We focus on comforting and supporting the bereaved through their healing from loss in the weekly meeting. Healing includes accepting the loss, feeling the feelings, adjusting to life without the loved one, and moving forward. Often, while we wish we did not have to go through the suffering, but we do successfully heal.

There is life after widowhood!
