Chicktime Fort Worth needs help!
We are looking for women to step up and
re- launch this chapter to serve the hurt and wounded again in our community!
Could that be you?


Hey Chicktime Fort Worth-
We would love to get Chicktime Fort Worth  back up and running!! Looking for compassionate and caring women to form a leadership team and secure a place to serve. 
Let’s do this!

December Update:

November Update:

Grateful for every little thing….like volunteers who are following our journey to locating a new place to serve! 


October Update:

We have narrowed down a possible charity partner to serve…..

So exciting!

September Update:

It’s been a long journey but we are not defeated. Keep checking back in! We will find a place to serve!

August Update:

We can’t wait to be HIS hands and feet again with you. 

Stay tuned. 

July Update:

As we explore options for a new place to serve we are also looking for compassionate people to join our leadership team. 

We are looking for a charity partner outside of Fort Worth so you must be willing to travel a little bit on our Chicktime Saturday…which is only once a month so very doable! Contact Sandi for more information at sbothum@gmail.com

June Update:

We can’t wait to serve again. Stay tuned!

May Update:

We were informed that volunteer activities at our last charity partner has been halted. Don’t worry. Chicktime Fort Worth will begin the search to find a new partner.

The Leadership Team is making adjustments to the needs of the chapter. 


February Update:

Clearfork Academy canceled our workshop for various reasons. .We will regroup and determine our next steps.

January Update:

Kristi was our workshop leader today at Clearfork, and she taught the girls to make ocean bottles.

The stones on the bottom represent our burdens that we are releasing. The smaller beads represent those small irritations. And the cork represents us learning to rise above.

Such a powerful lesson!

December Update:

We did not meet in December!

We were happy to allow other volunteers to come to Clearfork and spend time with the girls this month. 

See YOU in January.

November Update:

Pictures from our November workshop are pending. Our charity partner needs to approve and send them.

We will post them as soon as we get them. 

October Update:

Chicktime volunteers are so amazing that even Mabel the goose wants to join! Ask us how you can lead a workshop in 2023 or join our incredible leadership team.
And today we had a great time painting pumpkins with the residents of Clear Fork. We are in awe of their talent!

September Update:

Yesterday Kristi Haven led the girls at Clearfork Academy in this beautiful and meaningful craft… Good Deed Beads are a reminder to let our good deeds out way the bad.
Thank you to our great group of volunteers!
Keep watching here for your opportunity to join us in making a difference next month!


August Update:


Our August workshop was canceled due to Covid.

See you next month!

June Update:

Another great time with our charity partner Clearfork RTC.
We made my story album covers.
Next month we will work on art on the actual vinyl record. More details coming. Thank you chicktime gals for your love and creativity with these precious young ladies. They were so grateful for the time, attention, and creative expression.

May Update:

What an amazing time we had today at our new charity partner – Clearfork Academy Girl’s Campus. The girls were a little reluctant to participate at first, but soon joined in the fun! These very talented young ladies made paper flower wreaths, each as unique and beautiful as the creators.
Thank you to our volunteers Rainey and Miranda! We couldn’t have done this without you.
We are hoping to grow our chapter with additional volunteers and leaders. Let us know if you’re interested!

April Update:

Our new charity partner is awesome and we were grateful to attend this open house.

Here’s to new beginnings!



February Update:

I can’t think of a better day than Valentine’s Day to show up and show love. Chicktime Fort Worth shared love with the children at ACH Family Services Youth Emergency Shelter with a drop-off workshop including pizza and drinks., decorate your own sugar cookie kits (heart-shaped, of course) and a fun craft activity. Thank you so much to our generous donors for making this possible. We hope to be in- person next mont for a Great Green Get-Together, so stay tuned!!

They work so hard and we want them to know we appreciate what they do for our community!

May Update:

How we spent this past Sunday afternoon. Our virtual workshop leader had to reschedule for a different month and still no in-person workshops are allowed with our charity partner.

Since we completed our vaccinations weeks ago and hadn’t seen each other in-person for months, we stepped out on faith and met up at Sandi’s house to create origami activity packs for the kiddos at SafeHaven of Tarrant County SafeLiving group.

Thank you Sandi for the great idea and opening your home for our fellowship. #lovingourcharitypartner

After a year+ of drop-off workshops due to COVID-19 restictions, we were able to host our first virtual workshop with the SafeLiving Housing group at SafeHaven of Tarrant CountyLisa Albert led today’s workshop sharing knowledge on Self Defense as well as her own personal story as a survivor. She was awesome today as she transformed a standard in-person into an interactive and informative virtual workshop with the assistance of our co-leader  Sandi. Great teamwork ladies. I know the attendees, the SafeHaven leadership team as well as Janaand I appreciate your time and commitment. I can’t wait to see what we have in the works virtually for the May workshop????
