February is Black History Month

Black History Month 

 

Honoring and Celebrating Black Everyday Heroes

Don and Hazel Cameron

The Camerons give love and light everywhere they go. They lead an organization, Seattle Cares Mentoring, an affiliate of National Cares Mentoring, that focuses on healing and restoration in the Black community through evidence-based healing initiatives that unearth understanding, resilience, and faith.
The Camerons are active in the community, recruiting and training mentors to empower Black and Brown youth and their families, and that’s how I fell in love with their work.
They have taught me that it is all of our responsibility to instill hope and to give back to the community.
– Chericka Johnson, Churchome Director of User Engagement
