Widows of Deceased Veterans Foundation was founded September, 2004, when Mrs. Daisy Walden, wife of Sergeant Major Richard D. Walden (US Army Retired) provided assistance to a deceased veteran's wife. She desperately needed the financial assistance that could not be provided from the many places she had tried. After she visited the local Veterans Affairs office, it was determined that she was not eligible for any VA benefits. Mrs. Walden, through her tenacity, found more than $7000.00 needed for this wife of a deceased veteran to prevent foreclosure on her home.
Widows of Deceased Veterans Foundation is a unique program developed to allow others in this country to help those widows we care about. There are countless Veteran widows that do not qualify for Veteran Survivor Benefits and are in need. Our foundation provides our communities with a “one-stop” service of financial and spiritual needs related to being a widow of a deceased veteran. Please help us serve those who embraced our soldiers who fought to give us the freedom we all enjoy today. (Our widow/widowers of deceased veterans.)
"Transforming those trying to survive, into those wanting
"To serve where possible, the financial, emotional, health, and wellness, and social aspects of widows/widowers of deceased veterans."

Widows of Deceased Veterans Foundation has made:
Since I’ve been with the Widows of Deceased Veterans Foundation, I feel that whatever I may need, if the organization cannot assist me, they will try to find the assistance for me. The support I’ve gotten from WDVF is very important to me. I feel like I am with a large and loving family that really cares. Our monthly luncheon, sponsored by Golden Corral Restaurant, is another great benefit, because at that setting, we have speakers that will come and give us the most updated information that we need.
For the many years I’ve been a member of Widows of Deceased Veterans Foundation, I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I know that I have friends, if I need assistance with an issue that is particular to me. All it would take is just a phone call. It is association such as this, when a widow may be sick or just needs some counseling, that I know is available.
