About Our Chapter

Chicktime Washington DC was founded by Ariel Sarandinaki in 2016 with the idea of uniting the love, compassion, and talents of local women with young girls who have been exposed to domestic violence.

When children experience abuse, neglect, and suffering, they question their value and purpose in life. Ariel believed that no child should feel this way! Ariel’s mission for Chicktime Washington was to provide these girls with hope and joy by reminding them that they DO have worth, and they WILL have valuable futures.

Ariel believed that consistency is key and that this is particularly true for children who have experienced trauma. Which is why she worked to accomplish her mission by promoting safe and encouraging environments for these girls through monthly workshops. By doing so, she we aimed to provide consistency as mentors, role models, and friends. Ariel managed Chicktime Washington until 2018 and we will forever honor her vision!

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11
