At FROM WIDOW TO WINNER, we take pride in being problem solvers who are not afraid to take risks. We believe that with boldness, creativity and THE HEART OF GOD, there is nothing we can’t accomplish. OUR MANDATORY MISSION IS TO BUILD SAFE AND STABLE HOUSING FOR YOUTH WHO AGE OUT OF FOSTER CARE!
  • A home is where one dreams in a clean, safe and supportive environment.
  • A home is where one learns hospitality and being a gracious host.
  • A home is where one receives love and discipline and understands how families bond together.
  • A home is where one comes at the end of the day, lies down for a restful sleep and awakens to the great possibilities of a new day.
  • A home is where you return to share with family the details of your day and receive acceptance and encouragement to try again.

A Home is just what young ladies and young men, who are aging out of foster care, need! Let's start building Homes for our most vulnerable now, because homelessness is not an option! Watch the aging out video...first!

AND WE WILL NOT FORGET OUR

 

OBLIGATION TO HELP THE WIDOWS WHO

ARE ALWAYS ON THE HEART OF GOD!

There are many widows who struggle fiercely after the death of their husbands and many never receive the help they need to move forward. The videos below share examples of grief, grace and growth as our God walks with us through this new journey without our beloveds.

SEVEN REASONS WHY YOUR CHURCH SHOULD HAVE A

 

MINISTRY TO WIDOWS...

LET'S LEARN THE FACTS

Scholars have produced massive volumes on the biblical mandate to care for orphans and widows. The Bible is not ambiguous on this topic. I am grateful churches around the world have taken some steps to care for the orphans, though much more remains to be done.

But, in North American churches, I see hardly any intentional church wide ministries to widows. Millions are left to suffer and struggle in silence.

Though the biblical mandate to care for widows should be sufficient motive for our churches, consider some of the struggles widows experience. These seven factors should give you at least a glimpse of the need for ministries to widows in your church.

From Widow To Winner Projects International is a faith-based non-profit organization that stands for justice for widows and orphans. We are eager to open our doors to serve the Jackson communities for the betterment of its most vulnerable population.

We will need your involvement to achieve the results we envision for our people. We need...COMPASSIONATE, COMMITTED, DEVOTED AND DEDICATED MEN AND WOMEN WITH A STEADFAST, STAUNCH AND DETERMINED ATTITUDE to see the lives of the most vulnerable changed for redemptive and powerful purposes.

CONTACT us to be a participator in this most urgent and long awaited for opportunity to serve orphans and widows.

We are excited and filled with great hope and anticipation for a bright future for this great city and the people we joyfully serve!

  1. The death of a spouse is the number one stressor in a person’s life. Too many survivors are not ready to deal with the issues of widowhood (Holmes and Rohe stress scale).
  2. Over 800,000 persons are widowed each year. Of that number, 700,000 are women (U. S. Bureau of the Census).
  3. Widowhood lasts on the average 14 years. That is a significant portion of any person’s life (U. S. Bureau of the Census).
  4. There are over 14 million widows in the United States today. That is an average of 40 widows for every church in the United States (AARP).
  5. Upon the death of a spouse, a widow loses 75% of her support base. It is imperative for churches to stand in the gap (Widow’s Hope).
  6. Widows have a 30% higher risk of death in the first six months after the death of their husbands. They truly die of a broken heart (University of Glasgow).
  7. The poverty rate among widows is three to four times higher than elderly married women. Financial needs among widows are often great (Social Security Administration).

Every widow has a purpose from God, with and without her husband and every WIDOW can be a WINNER! FROM WIDOW TO WINNER seeks to help many women move forward with grace and victory to finish well. Take time to pray earnestly and effectually for a widow today.

Please don’t walk away from reading this short post without considering some type of action in your church to care for widows.

It is one of the clearest mandates of Scripture. (Taken from www.thomrainer.com, Feb. 2016)
