Healing spiritually, emotionally, and physically...

Older Women Embracing Life (OWEL) is an organized network of senior women that provides support for women—many living with and all impacted by HIV/AIDS—as well as their families and care providers.

Our vision is to create a community of women who are living full, productive and happy lives, despite the challenge of HIV/AIDS.

To bring that vision into reality, our mission is to plan, develop and implement projects and programs that will revitalize spiritual, emotional, mental and physical health and foster the development of deep and meaningful connections—connections with one another, with HIV service agencies, and with health care providers—that will support women’s confidence in proactive participation in their own care and well-being.
