What we're about

Soaring Spirits is an organization run by widowed people, that connects widowed people world wide. Our goal is to give you hope and to let you know that you're not alone. We have Regional Groups all over the US and are starting one here in NYC. It's a social group where we all connect and share. Although our group is open to anyone in the NY/NJ area or anyone who wants to travel for a social event, most of our meet-ups are in Manhattan. Sometimes we meet in other buroughs as well. This is a social hang-out group, not a support group, although we do offer each other plenty of support.

We're all inclusive - no matter your age, sex, religion (or lack thereof), sexual preference, relationship status, etc. This is NOT a dating service, it's a place to connect and make friends. We meet 2x per month at local restaurants, parks, beaches, movies, plays, museums, and many other fun events. If you have lost the person you planned on spending the rest of your life with to death, and you'd like to meet other people who "get it", give us a try. Welcome.
