How It Works

for grieving families

Broken Halos Haven allows grieving families a stress-free, no-cost getaway to empower and build the confidence of widows who are now parenting alone and to help them realize it’s OK to have fun, enjoy life, and find joy again.

  1. Register
    Widows can view the available dates on the calendar on our Book Your Stay page, then request to stay any of those dates.
  2. Create Registry
    After her registration is approved, she will have the opportunity to create a customized Grief Getaway Gift Registry based on her family’s needs. The registry will include a stay at Broken Halos Haven, plus other items. For example, if she has teenagers, she might choose to rent jet skis, select tickets to a professional sporting event, or want a gift card to a special restaurant. If she has preschoolers, admission to a children’s museum or trampoline park might be more her speed.
  3. Choose a Point Person
    Once her registry is complete, a unique URL will be generated that she can share with a trusted friend or family member who will serve as her coordinator/point person. They’ll be the one to send out the registry link to friends and family wanting an opportunity to gift items on her wishlist.

***Please Note: We respectfully asked that only recent widows who have lost their spouses within the last 18 months request to stay at Broken Halos Haven. Priority consideration will be given to the most recent widows. We reserve the right to decline any requests made for donated stays at Broken Halos Haven.

When Broken Halos Haven is not being used by widows, it will be available to the public as a short-term rental on airbnb.com. Proceeds from rental income will help offset operating costs.
