“Wildflower Women’s Foundation has encouraged me and strengthened me through the help of a wonderful mentor, outstanding emotional support and sound financial education. It helped me transition from a life that was filled with fear and uncertainty to one of confidence and self-respect.”
- A Wildflower
Wildflower Women’s Foundation empowers women and families experiencing the transitions of divorce or widowhood to move forward. We do this by providing a strong community of educational, financial, legal, and mentoring resources.
Our Values and Guiding Principles
Advocacy, compassion, integrity, inclusiveness, and respect
Wildflower Women’s Foundation emerged in 2010 to focus on the needs of a forgotten demographic: women in the transitions of divorce and widowhood. Every day in Colorado, 56 marriages will end in divorce, and ultimately, three out of four women will become widowed. Despite the growing number of families who are directly affected by these life altering events, there has been no specific assistance available. Wildflower Women’s Foundation now exists to fill that gap.
At Wildflower Women’s Foundation, we know that divorce and widowhood are some of the most traumatic experiences a woman may face in her lifetime – it was that realization that led to the creation of the Foundation. But instead of dwelling on the negative, we are committed to staying positive! When we band together, our radiant energy will spread like wildflowers.
Going through a divorce or losing a husband is not an experience that anyone is prepared for. So goes the phrase, “I didn’t know what I didn’t know.” At Wildflower Women’s Foundation, we understand how confusing this time can be. Our educational workshops are available to help guide you through this transition.
Stay tuned for our 2013 workshop schedule!
Divorce and widowhood is hard for everyone. Being able to successfully manage the emotions that are attached to the transition is essential to maintaining balance and order in one’s life. Finding the right person with whom to discuss these emotions can be a challenging task, in and of itself. Our mentorship program exists to connect Wildflowers with our own trained mentors.
For information on how to get involved in the mentorship program, contact Patti Wood at firstname.lastname@example.org.
After the loss of a partner, many women will face a profound financial transition. Divorced women typically see their financial status reduced by about 73% in the year following their divorce. Their income will drop an astounding 17%, as well. Similarly, widowed women tend to see a 27% decrease in disposable income following the death of a husband. At Wildflower Women’s Foundation, we are committed to addressing these harsh financial realities. Based on the unique needs of our Wildflowers, we have funds available for educational pursuits, legal consultations, and other financial needs.
