Cafe Momentum in Dallas Is Giving Teens From the Juvenile Justice System a Second Chance

Cafe Momentum is more than just a great Dallas restaurant — it’s a place where teens coming out of the juvenile justice system are given a second chance. During a 12-month paid internship program created by Cafe Momentum founder Chad Houser, the teens are taught life and job skills and made to feel part of a team — sometimes for the first time. With the restaurant closed due to coronavirus, the team has pivoted to making meals for local kids who are not getting free meals through school during the pandemic.
