When a dozen volunteers came in to work at Café Momentum, a downtown restaurant and nonprofit, Chad Houser pointed to a man in a blue T-shirt and black ballcap that said “Create Change.”
The man’s arms were covered in tattoos that paid tribute to his home of Puerto Rico, the Bible, law enforcement and family. He was a few minutes late on Friday but ready to work. A Cowboys-themed mask concealed most of his face.
What the teens didn’t know on Friday evening was that the dozen volunteers they worked with for nearly four hours were cops. They helped the teens prepare meals and bussed tables.
