Regional Social Events

Regional GroupsSoaring Spirits provides widowed people with the chance to meet socially, and to create a local community of widowed friends through our Regional Social Group program. Groups are led by our awesome volunteer facilitators who plan meetings twice a month in their geographical area.

Our meetings are focused on assisting widowed men and women in rebuilding their social structure post-loss. We don’t provide any presented content, and all of our meetings are held in easily accessible public locations. Our aim is to assist widowed people in getting back out into the world, with a group of understanding friends by their sides!

The locations of our regional groups are determined by the availability of a volunteer willing to head the program in any given area. To determine if there is a Soaring Spirits Regional Social Group meeting near you, just enter your zip or postal code below. Interested in joining our Regional Social Leader team?
