Chera is the Coordinator of the Community Care Ministry. She works with AAC volunteers to reach those in our community who are in need of a hand up or a listening ear. She also works directly with LEAVEN, Pillars, Energy Services, FISC and several other local agencies to provide needed referrals to people who are in desperate need of a home, a job, financial assistance, counseling or other support. She has a Bachelor of Science in Occupational Therapy and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from UW-Madison. Chera has volunteered with various organizations including Make-A-Wish Appleton and LEAVEN. She has been with LEAVEN since 2007 and has filled the role of both interviewer and caseworker. Chera very much enjoys working with those who are facing tough times. She finds value in instilling hope, discussing a plan to move ahead and most of all sharing the Gospel and the Good News of our Lord Jesus with many that are hearing it for the first time.
