My hope is that ALL children, women and families live in safe, nurtuing relationships and environments. There are many organizations in Oregon (where I live) that support this mission in homes, schools and communities. Unfortunately not all children, women and families have or know how to access them.
I feel lucky that in my community most families may have access to safe spaces and communities. And we are surrounde by physical spaces and nature that are beautiful. It does feel sad to me though that in a community that has so many assets that not all families share them equally.
A unique thing about me is I am passionate about nurturing people, relationships, families AND the environment. Often times people are passionate about either the environment or social issues but they often are disconnected. To me families and the environment are very intricately linked and both need tenderness, nurturing and thoughtful attention about how to best treat them.
I try to use my knowledge and resources to share with people who are seeking them. I feel quite fortunate that even if I don't know the best way to nurture children, women, families and/or the environment I have many friends and family that I can turn to for guidance. In addition I can turn to my relationships to find resources and organizatons that support my passion.
To me the relationships that I have are the greatest personal ASSET that I have.
