Founded by Teresa Johnson, The first Chariti Home Seeds of Promise Luncheon was held in 2010 as a means of communicating the mission and vision. Johnson recently spoke about her motivation for creating Chariti Home. “As a former teen mom myself, I knew all too well these challenges. So, I wanted the communities we served to see the positive outcomes/accomplishments that could happen when these young mothers are given the proper circumstances”
