Chattanooga Community Kitchen rebrands to ‘Chatt Foundation’ on 40th anniversary
In an effort to showcase their vast amount of resources ranging from housing to job training, the non-profit has been renamed The Chatt Foundation,
The center’s new name is meant to symbolize how they can provide a full foundation for someone to get back on their feet.
Baron King is the CEO of Chatt Foundation he said the organization needed a name that could meet various the needs of the homeless population.
“But when you ask people what we do, they say, ‘Well, I think they’re just a soup kitchen’. We’re involved in a lot more. We’re involved in education. We’re involved in health care. We’re involved in housing, job training, job placement. So we felt like we needed a name that was going to carry us into the next 40 years so people have a more accurate understanding of everything that we’re involved in in the fight against homelessness,” said King.
