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.
In 2020, you might be wondering if being happy is something you could admit to—but even during challenging times, there are ways to boost your mood and try to celebrate the good things in life.
When it comes to living an altruistic life that can help make a difference for others, one of the most valuable things you can give your community is the gift of volunteering.
On average, a new habit takes approximately 30 days to develop, so don’t get discouraged if you struggle at first. Remain positive and focused on the goal.
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.
