Establishing the Family Center has been a long-held dream for Cherokee Creek. Serving the whole family is a key part our mission. The Family Center lets us take our commitment to boys and their families to the next level.

Cherokee Creek Boys School is pleased to announce the launch of the Cherokee Creek Family Center. This new department will be led by Beth Venable, formerly Marketing and Communications Director. She will report directly to Executive Director David LePere.

Beth was selected because of her excellent experiential education and program development background and deep interest in family-centered healing. She was the founder of the weekend CCBS Treks program for students and the Family Treks program for our parents and siblings. She will continue to manage marketing and communications duties during the startup of the new department. Once the Center is fully up and running, marketing and communications will be assigned elsewhere within the organization.

“Establishing the Family Center has been a long-held dream for Cherokee Creek," LePere stated. "Serving the whole family is a key part our mission. The Family Center lets us take our commitment to boys and their families to the next level. Not only will we bring the design and implementation of our current family services under common management, we are also adding new programs and activities."

Beth Venable added, "We are proud of our numerous existing services, including Family Seminars, Family Treks, sibling activities, Women's Retreats for CCBS mothers, Father/Son events, and our Alumni Weekend. The new Family Center will allow us to make these programs even better and to introduce several new elements, such as Alumni Treks, Parent Coaching, Transition workshops, and skill development workshops to address the needs and interests of our boys and their families."

What's first? "Two 'Women of Courage' Retreats for CCBS moms, the quarterly Family Seminar featuring a special ‘Boundaries Boot Camp’ skill-building workshop...all in February!" Venable said. "We are excited and ready to get started!"
