About The Founder
Four years after becoming a widow, I wanted to turn my pain into passion. It was as if God had come down and spoke to me personally. A still small voice said, “Widow’s Mite”, start a foundation to help widows and widowers transition into this new phase of their lives. Well I knew about the story in the bible of the widow who gave all she had and the Lord was more appreciative of her giving because it was from the heart, as well as her last. From there the mind began to take off with thoughts of those who became a widow long before I did but had nowhere to turn for help. I want to turn the lack of help into hope for so many whom seemed to have lost hope because there is no help.
