Here at Cherish Families we focus our efforts on serving individuals who have backgrounds of polygamy - either members of a plural family or members of the polygamist communities. Our goal is to leave each of our clients empowered to create a new life and to live that life fulfilled. We recognize that members of these communities typically present to organizations like ours with a unique set of circumstances. As such, our approach is multi-pronged.
First, we provide culturally competent advocacy services designed specifically for individuals of these unique communities.
Second, we provide training. Our individual training varies from life skills pieces of training such as financial literacy and sewing to health, nutrition, and relationships. We also train professionals from non-profit organizations, law enforcement, and government agencies. These professionals are trained in learning to work with and support people from these communities in a way that enables them to make the difference they are committed to making.
Third, through our family resources, we are able to take families who are in crisis situations and work with them until their family is not only stable but thriving.
Our success is measured in the number of people we can help with the quality of programs and services we provide. These programs are fueled by our dedicated staff, caring volunteers and generous donors like you.
