Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley
In Support of Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley

At Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley we envision a world where all children have access to the medical care they need, and their families are fully supported and actively involved in their children’s care.  Thanks to our community of supporters we can offer families compassionate care by creating and running programs aimed at improving the health and well-being of sick children and their families.

When a child is battling a medical crisis, our House provides families with all the comforts of home and eases some of the burdens they face every day. Together, we continue to enable access to medical care for seriously ill children, allowing a family-centered care approach to treatment and giving families what they need most during this critical time -– each other.

Shakti

Sudha Gundugola

The word "Shakti" means strength in Sanskrit. It can be mental, physical or emotional, our team will bring it in and try to spread to all through our voluntary activities. One who has this inner and outer strength can deal with life with a positive outlook. We will try to support in whichever way we can to make a positive impact on families that need the most.

AHAVA Fellowship

AHAVA Fellowship

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.
