Chad Houser is about to open a restaurant that takes kids released from jail and teaches them to play with knives and fire, sparking a passion and a purpose for their new lives.
Bolstered by $1 million in crowdfunding and traditional donations, the Dallas chef is set to open his Café Momentum downtown in December, with a staff composed mainly of boys and young men who previously served time at a detention facility for nonviolent juvenile offenders.
The cafe’s tag line is: Eat, Drink, Save Lives.
