One of Dallas’ best restaurants only hires kids once jailed

Chef Chad Houser’s idea for Café Momentum is simple.  Give kids once jailed a second chance.  Reward good behavior instead of punishing bad behavior.  And help kids develop valuable restaurant skills that provide a stable livelihood.

Oh, and create award-winning food along the way…

The idea seems to be working.  About 85 percent of kids who work at Café Momentum never go back into the criminal justice system.
