Quynh Chau Stone is a mother, educator, entrepreneur and advocate. As the president and founder of The Source of Hope, a 501c3 non-profit organization with more than 4 years of tireless service to Dallas-Ft. Worth underprivileged communities, Quynh Chau tackles the critical issues of how to restore “under-dogs” hope to start all over again. With Quynh Chau’s direction and leadership, The Source of Hope collects, distributes and donates food and groceries to those in need through a network of charitable organizations. The Source of Hope delivered over 1000 meals monthly to the homeless and actively works with partner organizations to serve the most vulnerable in the Dallas – Ft. Worth communities.

As a Vietnamese born American, Quynh Chau experienced extreme trauma and loss in Vietnam which shaped her world view. Her personal journey of overcoming tremendous challenges inspires everyone around her. At the young age of twelve, Quynh Chau bravely escaped Vietnam with her four brothers. After thirteen days at sea, Quynh Chau and her brother were rescued and placed in a refugee camp in Malaysia. With the help of faith organizations and philanthropies working together, Quynh Chau was reunited with her father who had already been sponsored to the United States. Quynh Chau’s unthinkable experience as a child strengthened her faith and cemented her lifelong commitment to truly give back to the Country and people that helped her so much.
