News & Notes

If you're looking for a way to get outside while also improving your whole self, gardening may be the hobby for you.

You know volunteering has a positive influence (make friends, build connections, gain experiences, etc.), but did you know that it can actually assist your health?

There are always ways to give back to others around you, even including the presents you buy. Here are some ideas for Father’s Day gifts that give back.

  • 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.
