Welcome to Women Starting Over After 50! 

We are a nonprofit organization that provides support, topical education and social opportunities for women fifty and over. Find us on Meet Up and Facebook too

Some of us are single, some of us are married, some of us are empty nesters and some of us have never had children. Some of us have a working history, and some of us have never taken that path. But, whatever road we have chosen in life we all have one thing in common... We are wonderful women 50 and beyond and starting our journey for the 2nd half of our lives. We gather to help each other start that journey with passion and gusto to be happy, fulfilled women we were meant to be.

“NO one changes by what they KNOW... they change by what they FEEL”.
~ Oprah

         "I am really happy to have found this group. I feel I am just now starting to find my true voice, and it can only happen through my gathering my strength from other women who have a wealth of life experiences that are different but still the same as mine, because we are women over 50."R.D.

We meet at Gatherings on the second Sunday of every month which are open to everyone for a very affordable door fee.
