At The Neighborhoods of Cypress Waters, we are beyond excited to have a CARES team in place to help make our residents feel welcome and to plan and build up our community events. If this is your first apartment living experience with a CARES team, here is what you can expect:
1. Verb. To look after and provide for the needs of.
2. Noun. A team that redefines the resident experience through relationship building, event planning and servicing the needs of the community. See below image for what a CARES team should look like.
What’s your names? Where are you from?
My name is Naly Dunham and I was born and raised in Germany. My parents are Lao and Vietnamese.
My name is Joshua Dunham and I was born and raised in Thailand. My parents are from Texas and Louisiana
When you’re not planning resident events, what do you do in your spare time?
Our time is split between movies, friends, church, lakes, but enjoy just being at home as well
Do you have any interesting hobbies/talents? Places you’ve lived? Adventures?
Joshua ran an orphanage and completed his South-East Asian studies at the university in Thailand. He loves to travel, has been to most of the Asian countries and lived in Ireland and Romania.
Naly loves to travel too and speaks 5 languages. She has worked outside of Germany/U.S. in England, Belgium and Thailand as well. In England she has coordinated various city trips for different groups in England, Wales, Belgium, France.
Our latest adventure was having vacation in Myanmar which boarders India. It was very special to us … and we just came back two weeks ago.
What do you hope to bring to the Cypress Waters community?
We’ve never been a CARES team before, but we hope to build upon the strong sense of community which already exists at Cypress Waters and try to make it even better. We hope to add a sense of culture and celebration, but above all we want to serve and help build a sense of fun, safety, acceptance, family and community.
If you could do one nice thing for someone, what would it be?
Always, always cook dinner for them. There is nothing better than cooking dinner, putting on some good music and having great conversations. Feel free to take us up on that!
Where can residents meet & get to know their CARES team?
Of course you will find us at every event – including the Pool Party this weekend! – but besides that we have an open door policy. You are always welcome to come by our apartment in Sycamore Park (stop by the leasing center for our unit #) or feel free to email us anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to meeting you all soon!
