Stand in the Gap for Widows

Empowering the Church to Leave No Widow Alone

The Problem

  • There are more than 11 million widows nationwide, with over 700,000 new widows every year.
  • The majority of widows live close to the poverty line.
  • 75% of widows say their church has no organized widow program providing intentional care.

The Solution

Join the "No Widow Alone" movement!

Stand in the Gap for Widows is a nationwide movement equipping and empowering the local church to leave “no widow alone” in our churches and communities. 

When you partner with Stand in the Gap, we take care of you so you can take care of your widows. You will be locking arms with churches and organizations around the country in response to the Biblical call to “defend the widow.” The only question is…

Will you join the “No Widow Alone” movement?
