Cheryl L. Hood

Special Strong Champions Foundation Board Member

Cheryl felt God’s calling on her heart to serve the special needs community when she was just a teenager. Through various organizations and volunteer opportunities she has followed this calling most of her life, and ultimately started her own ministry serving the special needs community in 2011.

In addition to her ministry, Cheryl currently works for the Dallas Business Journal in advertising sales. However, her passion and heart are for her family. She is the mother to son Ryan, married to Kirsten and the parents of grandbabies Kenley, 5 and Rhodes, 4, as well as daughter Andi who is married to Matt Bickham and parents of grandbabies Wyatt, age 2 and Lydia, age 1. Her other great passion is serving God through supporting and loving on families with those affected by disabilities.

Originally from South Bend, Indiana, she has lived in Texas over 40 years and proudly calls it home.

When she is not working or serving, Cheryl can be found spending time with friends, being creative with decorating, or traveling.

Cheryl’s life verse is Jeremiah 29:11.
