Team Volunteering Page of AHAVA Fellowship
In support of Ronald McDonald House Greater Hudson Valley.
The first ministry born out of The Christian Center For Individual and Family Wellness, Inc. (CCIFW.org), AHAVA (meaning "love") Fellowship is a Christian Wellness Program for girls who desire to be introduced to God, or to reinforce their relationship with God in fun and positive ways. While the program is designed to promote a healthy relationship with God, it is also designed to promote a healthy relationship with Self, as well as the local and larger communities. This is executed via Christian education, personal-care events and activities, as well as service projects. In addition, we are committed to cultivating a Fellowship of girls where love and peace abound, paving the way for the constant blossoming of true friendship and sisterhood.

Prior to your group's first meal preparation, a representative of your group must schedule a tour of the facility; during the tour, the staff will review the rules and regulations of the House and the Meal Program.
Please be aware that you may not always have the opportunity to interact with families, especially daytime meals, as the families may be at the hospital when your group is volunteering.
