News & Notes

There are ways we can challenge ourselves to grow in empathy. If you want to learn more, check out these tips for how to cultivate more empathy for others.

Recently, the New York Times posted an article about spending time with your family and making that time count. It was very well done. The article highlighted the importance of family time, as well as ways to take the time that you have and use it to build and strengthen your relationships. It's worth reading, especially if you're feeling overwhelmed in the current fast-paced world we live in.

Learning to apologize and having compassion for another's experience may just save the relationships you care about.

  • 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.
