Cherish is an outreach ministry at Water of Life Community Church that has shared the gift of unconditional love with more than 600 young moms and children since 2011. We believe that by investing in the mothers, we have the opportunity to touch two generations at one time.
Cherish is a ministry for pregnant teens and young moms located in the city I was born in, Fontana, California. I believe education is the key to change and so does this remarkable ministry. Cherish provides education on parenting, life skills, self-worth, God’s love for each of us, budgeting and healthy relationships. Many of these young women are alone, have no parental or spousal support, have dropped out of college and have no jobs.
Cherish provides them with items for their children, education in specific areas and most importantly, hope. I love being involved in this organization and seeing the change in the girls from their first meeting to their sixth.
Rachel Tucker is the founder and director and man, does she have such a gift for this ministry. She loves and respects each of these girls and they hold her in such high regard. Through Rachel’s leadership, over 600 young moms and children have received love and care since the founding of this organization in 2011. I was blessed to be able to share my talents and gifts at Cherish. These children and teen moms have been given self-worth and hope through this organization’s unconditional love and support of its members.
