Young men assigned to Dallas County Youth Village deemed unsalvageable by society and trapped in a cycle of crime and punishment find opportunity through Cafe Momentum.  They need mentors and work skills that will let them earn a living wage.  They need hope and someone to believe in them.

The young men who excel in Cafe Momentum want to change, to find a better life and to support themselves and their families.  Cafe Momentum provides culinary training to the young men while they're assigned to the Youth Village.  They learn every aspect of restaurant and catering operations, from dishwashing to food prep to cooking to front of the house.  Upon release, they continue to work with Cafe Momentum through catering events and monthly pop-up dinners.  YOU can help us take the next step -- opening the doors of a brick and mortar restaurant that will give them a place to work, to continue honing their culinary skills and save money to further their education.

Greg and I believe in these young men, and in the power of Momentum.  Please help us give them hope and opportunity--help us GET THE DOORS OPEN!


We're giving you a special incentive to contribute!  Everyone who donates through our Cafe Momentum donor portal will be entered in a drawing to WIN a custom house number sign created especially for YOU by metal artist Greg Brown (Sean.Gregory.Metal)!

Upon conclusion of the GET THE DOORS OPEN fundraising campaign, a winner will be drawn at random.  Greg and the winning donor will consult to create a custom weathered steel house number sign.  The piece will be handcrafted in Greg's metal art studio and delivered (locally) for installation.**

All donors who have previously contributed will be entered in the drawing.  You know you want to help!  You know you want a custom sign instead of a spray-painted curb number that's chipped and fading.  Donate now, and help us GET THE DOORS OPEN!!


**Free delivery to D/FW residents, out-of-town winners will pay shipping & handling.
