We are a faith-based, all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) organization created to help single parents who are affected by domestic violence. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence:
About 20 people/minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States.
"1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men experience severe intimate partner physical violence, intimate partner contact sexual violence, and/or intimate partner stalking with impacts such as injury, fearfulness, post-traumatic stress disorder, use of victim services, contraction of sexually transmitted diseases, etc.".
Our Founder's personal experience with domestic violence turned into a passion to help others. Due to the lack of resources offered at that time, she was left homeless after leaving her abuser. The hardship and lessons she learned as a homeless, single parent of two young children, fueled her passion to develop this ministry.
Chat N Chew also helps food-insecure families, throughout the DFW area. The majority of our volunteers are single parents ready to give a hand-up to those in need.
