We exist to support people in under served communities by providing access to resources and services that empower individuals and families in being whole and making choices that work for their specific needs.
There are plenty of ways to cheer up somebody you love, many of them only involving your time.
It’s never too early to start teaching your children about the impact they can have in the world by spreading kindness.
Whether it be adopting an animal or helping in various other ways, we hope you’ll take part in Adopt a Shelter Dog Month.
After being forced to separate from my family, I was in a very broken condition. I had many contacts in many areas, but was drawn to Cherish Families. They reached out to me; stabilizing my life. They gave me hope and encouragement to engage life again. I felt comfortable with their unbiased service and understanding for my culture and faith.
After one and a half years of separation and no communication with my family, I was informed that my wife had suffered a massive stroke. She was on full life support and her family was considering “pulling the plug.” The hospital was told that I had divorced my wife and refused to give me any information. I reached to Cherish Families and their network of volunteers; the “information” was corrected. I was able to reunite with my wife and take charge of her care. I was in frequent contact with Cherish Families and received coaching/mentoring from several volunteers.
I am grateful for the stability, support, education, mentoring and encouragement that I have received through Cherish Families. You have made a profound difference in my life and the lives of my family.
