Touched by loss. Empowered through community.

Social Activities

We know that as a widowed person, your social life takes a major hit. You may not feel comfortable being around people you used to socialize with as part of a couple. Other friends may not call as much or you may just miss being able to go to a concert or a movie with someone.

CYWC sponsors regular social events such as trips to Ravinia, comedy clubs and plays, group dinners, and bowling nights. We also host a Valentine’s Day party and a family event.
