Board Member Cheryl Wolocatiuk first heard about Corazón through her parish St Martin de Porres, in 1994 and went on a house build. Cheryl helped with the High School program and there were many trips where Cheryl took kids down for the day. When she received her Blue Shirt, Corazón offered other opportunities to volunteer with the organization. Cheryl became a truck driver, carrying house build materials from Laguna Niguel to Mexico. She continues volunteering as a Blue Shirt. 

About her long commitment to Corazón, she says, "I continue to volunteer for Corazón because I believe in making a difference, I can see change, I can see the difference that Corazón has made in the communities. Working side by side with the family you're building for on a Saturday is very rewarding." Cheryl relays that "helping families and building community is part of our mission. I continue to hear stories and see people coming together to help one another - everyone benefits in the long run." She loves that Corazón does not "give and go," that the participants work and support each other in growing their communities. In Corazón's future, she hopes to continue raising funds for scholarships and other programs that will allow Corazón's families to grow and learn. Cheryl's life outside of Corazón includes enjoying outrigger paddling and softball among other outdoor activities.
