"We were gentle among you, just as a mother cherishes her own children." (I Thes. 2:7)

Cherish has shared the gift of unconditional love with more than 1,100 young moms and children since 2011. We believe that by investing in the mothers, we have the opportunity to impact two generations at one time. 

Our Mission

 

Cherish creates life-changing opportunities for pregnant teens and young moms through education, strategic resources, and mentoring. Each young mom at Cherish is empowered to recognize her intrinsic value, create a healthy home for her child, and transform her future. 

The heart of Cherish is our calling to share with young moms what God has shared with us. Every gift we have been given: our faith, education, resources, time, healing, and experience, are gifts that we can share.

A FEELING OF FAMILY

At Cherish we are committed to loving you like you are part of our family

Each mom and each child are cherished. For young moms without family support, they will have the support of the Cherish family. 

Thank You Christmas Angels

2020 brought unprecedented levels of hardship to Cherish Moms, with 50% losing a job, 38% left without enough food, and 13% becoming homeless.

 

Cherish HopeBuilders helped us stay open every week of the shutdown to provide food, baby supplies, and essential services. HopeBuilders along with year-end donors made it possible for Cherish to meet the urgent needs of young moms and babies and to give them a Christmas to remember. Thank you!
