WIDOWS WELL

  • Historically, a well has been a place where women have gathered in community and could draw not only water, but encouragement from one another. Here, widows come together in a safe and nurturing environment that allows them to continue to grow and learn in this season of life. It’s a place where women can say the name of their late husband and feel that others understand what it feels like to lose someone so close.
