Our Mission Statement:
We are working to create happier and healthier communities through breaking the cycle of systemic domestic abuse through the use of education, advocacy, and outreach in various Projects that encourage and facilitate sharing stories, art, and perspectives.
Our Vision Statement:
By 2022, the following Programs and Processes available for individuals and families experiencing domestic violence:
1. Pie, Felicia (PLUS). A 100% sustainable facility that includes a Co-op for survivors of domestic violence, and an on-site community center which houses Pie, Felicia!
2. Members of the Co-op would have the opportunity to work in the areas of Education, Advocacy, and Outreach.
We are a network of individuals, groups, and businesses who are working to end systemic domestic violence. 1 out of 4 women, and 1 out of 7 men will experience domestic violence. Felicia Chew Community Projects is a licensed educational small business in the City of Tucson, Arizona.
Our small local woman-owned business works to bridge the gaps between existing services and supports for ending domestic violence, and the individuals who are seeking support.

A Welcome Message from Felicia Chew
Thank you for visiting!
My name is Felicia Chew. I am a Mother, Teacher, and Advocate for each of us, and for all of us. I am the Founder of Felicia Chew Community Projects.
I moved to Tucson from New Mexico where I lived and taught on the Zuni Indian Reservation and also for Gallup-McKinley County Schools. I was born and raised in California, and became a helper at Esprit de la Danse; a TA for Ballet classes, Asian-American Studies classes, and Resource Classes in Davis; and taught for the Woodland Joint Unified School District, eventually becoming the District Interventions Coordinator.
In Tucson, I worked at La Baguette Bakery, the Home Depot, and I taught at the Bright Star Learning Center, the JCC, Animas Dance Center, ZUZI!, for the Amphitheater Public School District, Tucson Unified School District, Flowing Wells School District, Presidio School, and the Tucson Hebrew Academy.
I currently work as a substitute teacher in the community, as an education presenter for the Environmental Education Exchange, and also with “Felicia Chew Community Projects“. The three main Projects at this time focus on identifying gaps in social services and building bridges. The “Tucson Quilt Project” allows Tucsonans (and visitors) to share their messages and ideas with the community.
The “Tucson Zines” Project (pronounced ‘zeens’) provides a voice for tweens and teens in Tucson and the surrounding areas. The “Domestic Violence Support Services” Project provides education, advocacy, and outreach to victims and survivors of domestic abuse, and also to their families, and families of perpetrators.
I hope you have a great day, and I look forward to seeing you soon!
