We connect individuals and families, primarily those from polygamist cultures, with tools and resources for generational success
Memorial Day is an incredibly special time in America’s history. This weekend, do more than barbecue. Take time to truly commemorate the meaning of the holiday and celebrate the servicemen and women who have given everything to this country.
Summer is the perfect time to show your kids that giving back can be fun. Choose an organization that has a shared interest among your family and ask about volunteer opportunities.
All work and no giving back makes for a dull workplace! Talk to your employer about already existing programs such as matching gifts or time off to volunteer.
I started therapy because I was dealing with suicidal ideation. It was getting so bad that it was having a very negative influence on my life. I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity Cherish Families provided me to finally get all this stuff out of my head and into reality where I can deal with it. My therapist was amazing. The fact that he was trained to understand the culture made such a big difference for two reasons. One, I didn’t have to give him any backstory or context. He just got it. And two, he didn’t have any judgment when I shared about my polygamist upbringing and my current polygamist marriage. It didn’t phase him. In fact, I’m not sure I’ve ever felt more loved and accepted by a total stranger. He laughed at my antics and helped me uncover the woman I’d buried deep inside.
I'm happy to say that I haven't had a suicidal thought in almost a year. Prior to this, suicidal ideation was just normal for me; I thought everybody experienced it. I can't express how grateful I am that these resources were available to me when I needed it.
