Review for Soaring Spirits International, Simi Valley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It has been amazing to watch this organization grow and positively impact the lives of so many widowed people. From the face-to-face Camp Widow West and Camp Widow East programs, Widowed Village on-line community, to the Widow's Voice blog. Widowed at a young age, all of the support systems around me were for those much older and none that related to me. I wish this organization had been around years before it was. Amazing organization!

Review for Soaring Spirits International, Simi Valley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I lost my husband to ALS after a 4 year battle. At the time where was no organization or support system for younger widows. Soaring Spirits and Camp Widow provides so much support and encouragement to widows and widowers of all ages. Widowhood is not one of those groups you want to become a member of, but through SSLF you regain a sense of hope and community. Amazing!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the programs offered and events that I have attended. There is a sense of not belonging to your married or single groups of friends once you are widowed. Soaring Spirits provices that community and belonging.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make sure MORE people aware of SSLF, none of us is getting out alive! We need to have a much better support system for those left behind.

Role:  Board Member & I look forward to being a volunteer at Camp Widow again!.
