AUSTIN - The American Widow Project, founded by Austinite Taryn Davis after her husband, Cpl. Michael Davis, was killed in Iraq in 2007, now offers classes for military widows struggling to move on with their lives.

The program, called WidowU, offers courses in four areas: back to school, pursuing passions, overcoming obstacles, and health and fitness. The courses take place over a long weekend roughly once a month in Austin.

Class size is capped at six and Davis says the events are filling up in about 30 seconds. Austin was chosen, she says, to be the breeding ground for the fire to be ignited in these military widows’ lives because of its entrepreneurial spirit and creativity. Davis wanted to put these women in that environment.

The American Widow Project is where Davis says, “We see a world where women can lead self-sufficient lives and affect change in their own lives and their own communities.”

WidowU provides military widows with the tools, empowerment and education for the next steps on their journey.
