Mid-Peninsula Widows and Widowers Association


The Mid-Peninsula Widows & Widowers Association was formed in 1976
to provide support through the transitional period and beyond for those who have experienced the loss of a spouse.
Over a period of time we gain courage and face the fact that, though alone, we can go on with life.
Our support groups offer the understanding that can only come from others who have experienced a similar grief.
Grief is a universal human experience. When grief is shared, adjustment is easier.

Mutual needs are recognized and met through participation in various activities:

Weekly Meetings
House parties
Interaction groups
Guest speakers
Discussion groups
Dinner groups

What does our group offer?
Through contact with other widowed persons:
Emotional support
Opportunity for personal growth
New Visions for the future
New Friendships
You are very welcome to attend one of our meetings and see if our club is for you.
At present we have 190 members. Usually 60-80 members are at our Tuesday meeting. Our members generally reside on the San Francisco Peninsula from around San Mateo through San Jose.
Yearly dues are $66. (To join, new members must present a death certificate for their deceased spouse.)
