Help Café Momentum reach its goal this year of $150,000 and continue to transform young lives by equipping the community’s most at-risk youth with life skills, education and employment opportunities. Café Momentum is a nonprofit restaurant in downtown Dallas that provides a 12-month paid post-release internship program for youth coming out of juvenile detention. By teaching critical skills to youth in a safe, real-world environment, the transformative program offers interns experience in all aspects of the restaurant, as well as an ecosystem of support and nurturing accountability.
