Help for Widows in Athens, Ohio

Thursday posts tell about help for widows. It might be an organization, book, or website. I hope that as we go along this page will become one of the most valuable parts of the blog as it collects little known, but faithful and essential, ministries to widows all over the country, maybe even the world! If you have benefitted from such a help, please let me know about it.

Today I'd like to introduce you to a wonderful ministry in SE Ohio:
Good Works, Inc. at http://www.good-works.net/

According to their website, "Each year, many volunteers partner with us to assist these citizens with the vision to “make the widows heart sing” (Job 29:13) About eight years ago, Good Works re-established an intentional outreach of visitation to seniors, especially widows at their homes."

The director told me the following: ". . . a section on our web site called Senior Friends is the focus of our efforts with widows. We also serve widows through Samaritan Projects - (where we take teams to the homes of our friends who are widows in Athens County to do repair and rehabilitation on their homes). Finally, we serve widows through our Friday Night Life program both by providing rides (Rides to Life) and by providing companionship and food."

Amanda Carlyle is the contact person for widows.

May God bless Good Works!
