Cultural Humility Corner

The ICS Collaborative is offering a series of four webinars featuring nationally recognized Indigenous Knowledge Keepers and Elders sharing insights into the wisdom needed to thrive in this era of disruption and environmental change. In this first webinar, the Grandmothers Speak, a Circle of Grandmothers will share the wisdom that the Ancestors have left for us in four rounds of discussion. The Grandmothers will introduce
themselves, identify the warnings that the land, air, and water are providing to human beings, share the Medicines (teachings,
practices) that strengthen hearts, spirits, minds, and bodies, and embrace a vision for a future of peace. Non Indigenous people
are invited to join the webinar as listeners and witnesses. Listening is a key component of traditional Indigenous teaching practices and an essential aspect of learning how to be a good ally.
Payroll Deductions
Did you know that Cheshire provides staff with an easy way to give back to our Everyday Dreams program? You can designate any amount to be automatically donated from your paycheck. 

Just think - if every employee donated just $1 each pay the Everyday Dreams Fund that would be over $300 per pay and over $7800 a year. A little goes a long way!

To sign up for payroll deductions, please speak to your Program Manager to complete a Payroll Authorizations & Deductions form.
