What We Do

Our intent is to reach the Black widowed woman by offering various empowerment initiatives.

BWWE's mission is to aid widows back to spiritual, emotional and physical wholeness through means of mentoring, social and physical interactions, monetary assistance, podcasting, arts and entertainment, book & magazine publishing, sisterhood calls, blogs, and wellness events. We hope that you will support us in our endeavors.

Our purpose: to offer a safe space for Black women widows to connect, support, empower, and grieve together.
