We offer informational events where attendees can hear firsthand about the Chester Street Foundation from its founder, Shawn Alex Nemeth. Shawn (along with other facilitators and clinicians), will give customized presentations to groups of community members, teachers and caregivers.

Shawn will provide information about Chester Street’s mission and programs, and he’ll talk about why it’s so critical to help abused children heal from trauma. He will also share his personal story and sign copies of his book, Thorns of Chester Street, for people who make donations to the Chester Street Foundation.
