Chad & Kathy
Chad M. Robichaux is the President and Founder of the Mighty Oaks Foundation. Chad and his team are dedicated to helping America’s Military Warriors and their families suffering from the "unseen wounds" of combat such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Their effort is on the front line to intercede and end the climbing 23 per day veteran suicide rate and the current and tragic 80% plus divorce rate.
Chad is a Best Selling Author, MBA, and a Board Certified Pastoral Counselor with the BCPPC* & AACC* with specialty in PTSD, Trauma Care. Chad and his wife, Kathy, have been married for 20 years, and have three teenage children; Hunter, Haili, and Hayden. After eight deployments in the Afghanistan War on Terror their family spent years recovering from the hardships associated with combat. They now are a testimony of victory over the struggles our Warriors face returning home.
In addition to Chad’s military service as a Special Operations Force Recon Marine, he has served our nation as a Federal Special Agent with the US Federal Air Marshal Service, and operated for the Department of Defense (DoD) Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC). Chad is also a retired Professional MMA World Champion, who has used his platform to advocate the civilian support of America's Warriors returning home.

Kathy Robichaux founded the Mighty Oaks Foundation with her husband, Chad, after their own story of victory after military service and a burning desire to share the path to victory with others. Kathy brings a powerful testimony of unconditional love and forgiveness that shines through the darkness as a ray of hope. She has a strong connection with women and wives struggling with the pain and heartache in the wake of combat trauma.
Kathy speaks publicly as a wife and a mother who fought the war at home for her husband. On the other side of that war Kathy found a restored relationship with Chad, and an even stronger faith. It was Kathy’s love and faith all along that kept the Robichaux Family together and subsequently the Mighty Oaks Foundation was born. Kathy has a unique knowledge of PTS and what it looks like first hand. She speaks to women with a powerful message of God’s grace, forgiveness, and moving forward. She has reached the hearts of many women through her faith, public speaking, and the Mighty Oaks Warriors Programs by effectively healing lives and marriages for the glory of God.
