Our Board Members

Marvee McLendon, RN, BSN
Founder

I believe the detours we take in life are sometimes the compass that guides us to our purpose. CNC is based on my experience with domestic violence that left me homeless as a single parent of two.  The good news is, God, rewrote my story through strangers like you. And now, through our donors, volunteers, and supporters, Chat N Chew is making an impact and giving hope to others in similar situations one family at a time.

CoFounder/Ad Hoc Duties

I support CnC because it's a direct reflection/expression of the vision God has given me for our family.  This is a cause that is personal to me not just because of the obvious reasons, but it's something I lived through as well, and I see the impact on many lives.
