Refocusing Widows is a faith-based ministry initiative under the umbrella of Fresh Hope. We utilize research-supported peer-to-peer support structures, as well as personal coaching, to encourage widows to embrace and move through their grief to a new season of growth and personal accomplishment.

“One of the greatest assets we have to help us become successful at all God intends for us is self-awareness. Knowing who the Father has naturally wired us to become facilitates our success both in our vocation and our Kingdom serving.”
