About CLR Trust: 

At CLR Trust our mission is to have you experience life, not just go through the motions; for you to see the beauty in yourself and the world around you; to have fruitful and fulfilled relationships.

What if we, all people, were put on this earth for more than just go to school, get a job, pay taxes, then die?

We all have a purpose in life but it may not always be clear as to what our purpose is. We get caught up in the demand of our daily lives and the need to work for money.

At CLR Trust we show you how to achieve true happiness by living out your life’s purpose.Coaching Services

My coaching programs are tailored specifically to you. I cater to your goals, your wants and your needs. Together  through our strategy sessions we will design an outline to enable you to achieve your goals. We begin by writing out the goal(s) and work backwards breaking the goal down in monthly tasks then weekly targets. You will feel confident in your ability to begin working towards making your goals a reality.

We then work together, one on one, for 12 or more  weeks. We will meet weekly and speak periodically throughout the week to ensure you stay on task. During this time you will gain the confidence and tools needed to become who God created you to be. 

Lifestyle Transformation
$3,000+

Action springs from what we fundamentally desire. The first step is always the hardest, which is why working with a coach is beneficial in achieving your goals. I will assist you in unfolding your current lifestyle.  Together we comb through three important areas of your life: your Mind, Body and Soul, or as I like to call them your Life, Liberty and Happiness. These areas of your life determine who you are, how you act and how you react to life. We focus on making changes to these three areas by implementing small and impactful changes to your current lifestyle. We break them down into weekly tasks making your life’s purpose more obtainable and achievable. By setting weekly tasks, we make the transition from your current lifestyle to your new profound lifestyle less intimidating and more realistic. You will have a clear vision of how to achieve your life’s purpose and become who God created you to be.

Holistic Healing
$1,500+

When God created the earth, He ensured the earth would provide for every creature, especially Humans. My Holistic Health Coaching Service assists you in achieving your health goals. Whether it be to maintain a healthy lifestyle or target a current ailment.  I provide you with healthy, natural and holistic alternatives. Together we work toward improving the quality and longevity of your life. Making health conscience changes to your lifestyle and diet will not only improve your health but give you the energy and drive to achieve you life’s purpose and become who God created you to be.

About CIDNY: 

CIDNY’s Action Network (CAN) is made up of people with disabilities who come to CIDNY for individual services, as well as others who care about justice and equality for people with disabilities. We have monthly meetings where we learn about disability issues, practice advocacy skills, and plan activities to create change. CAN volunteers testify at public hearings, attend housing rallies, and meet with state legislators. Find out more about what it means to be part of CAN. If you subscribe to our email list, you will get Action Alerts about urgent disability issues. You’ll be given a sample email to send or talking points for a phone call to your legislators or other policy makers, and with one click, your message will go to the right email addresses. You can also find major federal laws CIDNY supports, tips on how to be an effective advocate, contact information for letters to the editor, the status of any state bill, and much more.

The Long Term Care Ombudsman Program (or LTCOP) is a federal advocacy program dedicated to protecting people living in long term care facilities. In New York State, the Office for the Aging operates LTCOP through its Office of the State Long Term Care Ombudsman https://ltcombudsman.ny.gov/Volunteers/Volunteers.cfm.

The heart of the Long Term Care Ombudsman Program is its corps of specially trained and certified citizen-volunteer ombudsmen. Many volunteers are professionals from various fields. These dedicated Ombudsmen spend an average of four hours a week in each of their assigned facilities, advocating for the residents.

The New York State Long Term Care Ombudsman has chosen CIDNY-Center for Independence of the Disabled, NY http://www.cidny.org/ to manage the program for New York City. CIDNY was chosen because it had over 35 years of success advocating for people with disabilities.

 

Sincerely,

Mary Jane Wolper

What is CIDNY’s Consumer Action Network (CAN)?

CIDNY’s Action Network is made up of people with disabilities, as well as others who care about justice and equality for people with disabilities. Each of us brings our experience, our strengths and our energy to monthly meetings where we plan activities, learn about disability issues, and practice advocacy skills. Throughout the year, we take action steps to create change, such as:

  • Attending public events to find out whether they are accessible.
  • Sending email messages and letters to lawmakers asking them to vote for or against bills that matter to people with disabilities.
  • Meeting with state and city government officials to explain how their decisions affect our lives.
  • Testifying at public speak-outs about health insurance and special education.
  • Together we can change how the government, businesses, and others in our community treat people with disabilities.

For more information about CAN or to get on our mailing and phone lists, please contact Monica Bartley, Community Outreach Organizer, 646-442-4153 or mbartley@cidny.org, or join online.

Things You Can Do to Decrease Your Cancer Risk

 Get screened. Older age increases the risk of developing cancer. Start getting screened at the recommended age and spread the word.

 

Know your family history. Both colorectal and breast cancer can be genetic and can run in families. Make sure you tell your doctor if you have any family members who have had breast or colorectal cancer because this may change your screening recommendation.

 

Change your diet. Eating red meat (eg, ground beef, lamb, or processed meats) has been linked to colorectal cancer. Increase the amount of fruits and vegetables you eat. Decreasing alcohol intake can decrease your risk for breast cancer.

 

Stop smoking. Smoking raises your risk for every kind of cancer. Ask your doctor or navigator for resources if you need help quitting.

 

Exercise. People who are overweight are more likely to develop colorectal and breast cancer. Add exercise to our day to reduce your risk.
