Chaz Stevens, Founder

"We're changing lives. Are you in?"

The Chaz Stevens Way

When I started ESAD years ago, I realized very early on who I was serving, and when I reviewed the competition, I was aghast to discover rampant fraud, deception, and other ethically challenged agendas.

I made myself a pact … I will do it right, I will do it my way, or I won’t do it at all.

Don’t take that as me being holier than thou. Rest assured, I made/make lots of mistakes. But I make “honest” mistakes that I try to learn from.

So when a wounded warrior shows up needing my help, there’s no way that I’d do anything but what is honorable to assist him/her.
