CheryI has lived in White County for over 40 years having moved from Atlanta in the 70's and having grown up in Orlando. Her family is a member of Nacoochee United Methodist Church. Her children all attended White County schools and were very active in most everything the school offered, from sports to community organizations. Cheryl soon became involved in the culture and life of the community.

     When Family Promise of White County was established, I volunteered as Coordinator for my church to help house and feed the families who would pass through the program. Many became friends.. 

  I am proud of this program, although it is small in comparison to other charities many people have benefitted from what we offer. The program is growing and I see it making more of a difference every day. With the help of this community we will continue to grow and thrive and make a difference in the lives of many.
