Sheron Ann Foundation was created in honor of our CFO’s mother, Sheron Ann Chattman.
Born on March 28th, 1950 in Fort-Worth Texas, Sheron was a dedicated woman who always believed in taking care of family first. She raised, not only, her three biological children, but also three of her grandchildren, and became a foster mother to displaced youth during the 1990s.
Sheron grew up in the south during the civil rights era, and migrated to California in the 1970s. She is remembered by her family as a strong, fearless, and compassionate woman.
Being a domestic violence survivor, she knew domestic violence was something that happened to her, but did not have to define who she was as a person. She worked hard to not allow her experiences with trauma to control her personal narrative. Through the way she lived, she has inspired us to help create opportunities for others to take back control of their own personal narrative.
Sheron taught us to strive for the best, even in the hardest of times. She reminds us that, though trauma and domestic violence have a tremendous impact on the survivor, we are just that; survivors, and we are more than what our experiences say we are.
