Who and Why "The Reality"

The greek word that "widow" was derived from is "chera".  Chera described a situation - not a person.  The word means to be without a husband.

For that reason, we serve women who are without a husband for many reasons - including the death of a spouse and divorce with or without children.  Take a look at some of these statistics for Metro-Denver - or check out the video!
