The work days are long, and the tasks are intense, but everyone at the CORE Center of Cook County gives 110% day after day to ensure the highest quality care for people living with infections diseases. This year, to celebrate National Spiritual Care Week, Bishop Anderson House is partnering with CORE to present “A Day of Remembrance.”

Staff members and clients will take time to remember, honor and process the deaths of patients and staff members through the past year. Chaplain Jim will provide music during a time of quiet and reflection, and we will give space for learning about chaplaincy and the importance of processing tough times in the work place.

The Bishop Anderson House partnership with the CORE Center began in 2014, when Dr. Toyin Adeyemi, physician at CORE/Stroger and Bishop Anderson House board member asked if we could provide Chaplain care to patients in the Project Connect program.  We continue to deepen our relationship, and now provide monthly Breathe Deep Days to address stress and burnout in the workplace.

If you are looking for a rewarding and easy volunteer task, please consider helping with a Breathe Deep Day. Contact Ann to join our team.
