A new model for juvenile justice: why a pro-football MVP is helping this restaurant go national

Chef Chad Houser was a rising star in the Dallas restaurant scene, but after seeing the potential being wasted within the youth impacted by the criminal justice system, he felt a calling to do more and decided to pass on his love of food and the culinary arts, paired with the power of relationships to change their lives. And through an exciting new partnership, this model is poised to transform the way juvenile justice is handled across the country.

“What I see is the future of what juvenile justice should look like everywhere, across our country.”
— Judge Sheila Calloway, Nashville Juvenile Justice Center
