About The Foundation

Esther Snyder and her son Rich established the In-N-Out Burger Foundation to give children hope. Inspired by Esther’s belief that every child deserves a chance and a future, and driven by the family’s own encounter with child abuse, the Foundation supports programs of prevention and assistance to make that future a reality.

Organization Spotlight

Interface Children and Family Services

Community Partners of Dallas’ (CPD) mission is to provide what abused children urgently need today to thrive tomorrow. They provide for the immediate and urgent needs of children who are abused and neglected in Dallas County, and encourage and support the Child Protective Services caseworkers involved. Seemingly small things can make a big difference for a child recovering from abuse and/or neglect – a car seat for a ride to safety, a bed in a home they can trust, or the first holiday celebrated in years. By providing for their basic and individualized needs, they can send the message someone cares and begin the process of healing.

What is child abuse?

Child abuse is when a parent or caregiver, whether through action or failing to act, causes injury, death, emotional harm or risk of serious harm to a child. There are many forms of child maltreatment, including neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, exploitation and emotional abuse.

With your help, we can help prevent the unconscionable act of child abuse, and change the startling facts that go with it.  Together, let’s help give a voice, and a chance, to abused children everywhere.
