We are proud to announce that Chris Evans is the new board President of alley’s house. Chris officially became the board President in October of this year, and he is excited to take on this new role. Chris is a Dallas resident and is an attorney at Shore Chan Bragalone DePumpo, LLP specializing in patent and trade secret litigation.
Although he is new to being the President, he is not new to alley’s house. Chris first became involved with alley’s house in February of 2011, when current board member Carmen Bremer introduced him to the organization. She asked him if he would be interested in joining the board.
“I’d been looking for a charitable organization to get involved with for a couple of years but had not found the right fit,” Chris said. “The alley’s house mission and size both appealed to me.”
The mission of helping young mothers really made an impression on Chris as well.
“I was a new parent so I had a great appreciation for the difficulties facing teen mothers,” Chris said. “And I liked that I would be able to make an immediate impact because of the organizations size.”
The best memory that Chris has at alley’s house so far is when the teen moms spoke at the 15th Anniversary Luncheon this past October.
“What impressed me the most about the moms was their poise and desire to become social workers to help others,” Chris said. “It was inspiring to see that we’ve broken the cycle of poverty and created a new positive cycle of assisting others in need. I got goosebumps.”
Chris has high hopes for the future of alley’s house.
“I want us to grow and expand our fundraising so that we can serve more teen moms,” he said.
