Quynh Chau Stone is a mother, educator, entrepreneur, and advocate. As the President and Founder of The Source of Hope, a 501(c)(3) 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. Her relentless drive has won her the trust and respect of a broad-based coalition of community partners that work exclusively with The Source of Hope to provide the necessary food, education, and job training to those that critically need help and a second chance.
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.
As an entrepreneur, Quynh Chau is a skincare rain-maker and has been working with Spa Source USA to educate and implement skincare practices for over 20 years. She has helped to set up over 1000+ salons. Quynh Chau received her formal training from international institutes such as the Matis Paris Institute in Paris, France, and exclusive aesthetic skin care clinics in New York, Chicago, and Dallas. Through her training and certification, Quynh Chau continues to support and promotes new cosmetologists entering the aesthetic profession and requires guidance, training, and experience in this field. Quynh Chau also manufactures a line of exclusive skincare products sold to boutique skincare clinics internationally. With her experience in the skincare industry, Quynh Chau frequently publishes insights and training content for professionals internationally. In addition to the aesthetic industry, Quynh Chau is a media darling for the Vietnamese – American community. Quynh Chau regularly directs and produces her local television and radio show – The Quynh Chau Show, which covers resources for the community, political views (e.g., why should minority care about voting?), living skills for minorities, health & beauty Insights, and entrepreneurship.
Quynh Chau Stone is dedicated to the mission of inspiring others and serving those in need with dignity, wisdom, and a generous heart. As Quynh Chau often shares with others, “My path has never been easy. I get lost and frustrated but I find that if I trust in the Lord, he generally leads me in the right direction with the right people.” And with that, Quynh relies on her faith and generosity of others to grow the community, share her story, and to inspire others to “soar above.”
