“Laughter Heals Comedy Show Case”
No Dreams Deferred, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that is focused on providing youth/individuals with an opportunity to learn various arts, crafts, cultures and sciences in an effort to be exposed to a more diverse realm of life, as well as teaching them to be more critical thinkers, and developing character and strength. Chase N’ Laughs is a comedy show brand, that promotes comedy shows, hosting of events, and various entertainment related programs. These two endeavors are produced by comedian/host/entertainer Chase Lamar Smith. Laughter Heals is an initiative to bring entertainment and humor into the lives of those that enjoy comedy and entertainment, and are in need of uplifting and comic relief.
In an outreach effort, my goal is to inspire hope, provide positive reinforcements, inspiration and encouragement to the residents of Jane Adams Place/Shelter for Women & Kids. This will come in the form of providing entertainment, uplifting communication, inspiration and other resources. Comedians and other artists will come monthly to engage the residents in lecture, entertainment and motivational experiences. Unless, otherwise noted, this program will take place every 4th Thursday of the month.
