Community Health Outreach
Often we find our daily experience so busy that we don’t feel comfortable taking the time to reflect on it. When something happens to us or to someone we care about, we are caught off guard and don’t know how to move forward.
“Honoring Our Lives” is Interfaith Community Services’ effort to provide the space and the tools for individuals and families to assess their lives, anticipate challenging circumstances that might arise, and begin making plans to adapt to new and potentially complex situations. Such circumstances include accidents, serious illness, the natural process of aging, and the inevitable transition into death. While we can’t avoid events or conditions that cause us stress or pain, we can strategize means of addressing and even transcending them.
Honoring Our Lives programming prepares people of all life stages and cultures transitioning through life stages and their departure from this life.
Advance care planning is a way to help insure that your values in life and wishes for care will be honored all the way through your life, if you are ever unable to speak for yourself. Interfaith Community Services (ICS) offers FREE workshops to help people begin, continue or revise their advance care planning.
