Our Founder - Starya Pope

Starya Pope-(Owner and founder of Teamchaun). Starya has poured years of unconditional love, sacrifice, and continuous training into all 11 of her children. Starya takes pride into ensuring her children are afforded the same opportunities and resources that privileged children are given.

In 2017, after experiences the lack of quality care, resources, and support, Starya decided to ensure individuals and families with similar situations and statuses-does not have to be faced with the same adversities and disappointment. Starya does not want her son’s death to be in vain. It has always been a mission of Starya to assist anyone who does not have resources or anyone that does not know what route to take to retrieve or receive these resources that can assist them to become independent. Losing her son, gave Starya the drive to put Starya dreams and aspirations into action. Through fundraising, sleepless nights, and countless research, Starya decided the best way to honor her son was to guarantee other families are given support and means to ease the pain of getting through.
