We are a violence prevention, education and intervention-based organization, which advocates and supports youth, young adults, families and community organizations affected by violence.
Mothers In Charge, Inc. advocates for families affected by violence and provides counseling and grief support services for families when a loved one has been murdered. We are comprised of impassioned mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters and others who are committed to working towards saving lives and preventing another mother from having to experience this terrible tragedy.
Each mother, grandmother, aunt or sister brings a special gift to this organization and its mission. Their passion and drive comes from within because each one of these brave women has somehow found the strength to turn a personal tragedy into a medium for change. They realize that positive change cannot happen within communities without addressing the issue of senseless and random violence. They know that in the names of their lost sons, daughters, and loved ones they can and must serve as the catalyst for change.
In addition, Mothers In Charge collaborates with elected officials, community leaders and other community and faith-based organizations on legislation and solutions to support safe neighborhoods and communities for children and families.
