LaKiesha Chatman Smith

Family Services Caseworker | East Texas Office

LaKiesha joined Christian Home and Family Services in 2023.  LaKiesha graduated from Stephen F. Austin Stated University with a master’s degree in social work.  She has always had a passion to serve and empower youth and families. LaKiesha states “It is never about me, but about Christ, which is loving and serving his people humbly and meeting them where they are in their time of need.”  LaKiesha and her husband, Recardo, married in June 2011 and recently adopted two children: Kyndal and Gavin.  They have four dogs (Zeus, Maverick, Cookie, and Floppy), four horses (Shine, Chaos, Aspen, and Baby girl) and one cat; Lilo. LaKiesha enjoys playing piano, traveling, gardening, and most importantly spending time with those who matter the most, FAMILY!


LaKiesha is very grateful and excited to share the loving choice of adoption through a Christian agency and help to fulfill Christian Homes mission of providing a Christian home for every child.
