October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.The Chase Family Foundation started this organization to give back to the community. But, for Susan Chase her reason to give is personal. Chase is not only a survivor of domestic violence but she’s also a breast cancer survivor.
In 2008, Susan Chase started a nonprofit called The Chase Family Foundation. Every year, it hosts multiple charity events such as Help the Girls to donate undergarments to local women’s shelters.

Susan Chase and I would like to thank everyone who voted for us. For the 10th year running The Chase Family Foundation has been named runner up as the BEST PHILANTHROPIC INDIVIDUAL OR FOUNDATION by the readers of CitiScapes Magazine. Our foundation is so tiny compared to the other winners in this category. We are truly humbled and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
NWA Remarkable Woman of the Year!
I NEVER dreamed of being chosen from more than 2,000 local nominations as the winner from our local area. I know that between Johnny Bakker and my remarkable friends that have kind and huge hearts and that volunteer to help The Chase Family Foundation, my desire to help the Home-bound seniors with food insecurities, gathering new bras or very gently used bras and new panties for the Battered Women Shelters, 7 Hills Homeless Center, Hillcrest Towers, Faith in Action, NWA Food Bank, NWA Women’s Shelter and the Peace at Home Family Shelter with some much needed help.
Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
