Support Our Ministry and the Widow Community by Donating

Why A Widow Ministry?

  • There are approximately 700,000 widows that join our ranks every year.
  • 60% experience health issues in the first year and have 30% of death within the first 6 months.
  • There is a loss of 75% friendship network within the first three months of the loss of a spouse.
  • 73% of churches do not have a widow ministry.
  • 1/3 of widows meet the criteria of clinical depression in the first month.
  • Widows are a silent population and the fastest growing demographic.
  • There are 76 bible verses about widows in the Bible.

Most importantly....

  • Widows make up one of the clearest and most neglected mandates in the bible.

We at Beauty from Ashes Widow Ministry are asking you to support our ministry. With your donations, we will be able to:

  • Support the current widow needs and reach out to widows in need
  • Provide financial help to widows in need
  • Provide additional facilitators
  • Offer support to widows with children
  • Help with widow events; such as Valentine's Day event
  • Keep our website running, marketing, connect with other organizations, explore connections, bring awareness
  • Help in making BFA material available to other communities and churches
  • Keep BFA growing and empowering widows


We are always in need of volunteers. You do not have to be a widow to volunteer, you simply have to pray and feel called to help widows. I am in need of committed, reliable, compassionate, loving, and Godly women to help me. For a long time, it was hard for me to ask for help in my life, and I have learned through my grief to "simply ask". I have found that God sends angels to help when you least expect it!

Here are the needs:
