Witten heads Score Foundation which fights domestic violence

Not sure why I did not mention this earlier, but I think Dez is not Jason Witten’s favorite teammate right now, read here.

Now in its fourth year, Jason Witten’s SCORE Foundation has launched numerous outreach programs and funded several new building projects in Texas and his native Tennessee.

Three years ago, the foundation launched the Jason Witten SCOREkeepers program, a unique initiative placing full-time, trained male mentors in battered women’s shelters throughout Texas. The mentors seek to demonstrate positive male behavior to the children living in these shelters in an effort to break the cycle of violence that plagues families affected by abuse. With the help of a generous grants from the Allstate Foundation, Jason Witten’s SCORE Foundation has placed SCOREkeepers in six shelters across the Lone Star State – The Family Place (Dallas), SafeHaven (Fort Worth), Family Violence Prevention Services (San Antonio), New Beginning Center (Garland), Denton County Friends of the Family (Denton Co.) and Safe Place (Austin). He also routinely hosts children from these shelters for special events like Christmas parties, bowling outings and trips to Cowboys training camp.

In September 2008, Witten was honored by the Texas Council on Family Violence as one of the 30 Stars Over Texas, joining Governor Rick Perry, US Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, US Senator John Cornyn and former Governor Ann Richards, among others, as 30 people who have made a significant difference in fighting domestic violence in Texas over the last 30 years.

Witten be asked some questions about Dez tomorrow out at the American Century Golf Tourney he’s attending with Tony Romo and Miles Austin.

Let’s see if he has anything to say about Dez’s latest incident.
