Mommy's Heart, Inc. to Support Abused and Neglected Children

The crux of our organization's mission is protecting the constitutional rights of fit mothers, who have been stripped of their parental rights for no good reason. Family courts across our nation are violating fundamental basic human rights. Innocent children are dying as a result. With your assistance, we can reform the family court system to ensure women no longer have to fear losing custody of their children if they report abuse. A domestic violence survivor should not have to suffer retaliatory legal abuse by her former partner's weaponization of the court system using the child as a pawn to exact revenge for reporting intimate partner violence in an effort to escape an acutely dangerous situation safely. This is precisely what is happening on a large scale, and we MUST stop it.

Angelina Jolie and other celebrities have recently been speaking publicly about this very important issue and assault on families and children, and NBC has been covering this topic in recent months due to the enormous number of child deaths related to rogue and corrupt family court judges and lawyers.
Mommy's Heart, Inc. is the only charity of its kind offering these aforementioned services free to mothers and children suffering from the abuses and weaponization of the family court system. There is a GREAT need, and this need is growing. I am chairing our foundation's Inaugural event with fellow board member, friend, actress, and child advocate, Tina Louise, which will take place on May 11, 2022 in Manhattan's Upper East Side and will be well-attended by approximately 200 guests, including celebrities, global business leaders and philanthropists, influencers, and press. We are expecting attendees from the NY Post, Daily Mail, and other notable publications. Photographers from Getty Images and Patrick McMullan will be present as well.

We are seeking volunteers to assist at the event with the guest list, silent auction, and fundraising. We are also seeking individuals interested in filling a volunteer position as a mental health or legal expert on our Advisory Board, as well as those interested in helping us with outreach, planning fundraising events, and procuring monetary and in-kind donations.

Mission Statement

Mommy’s Heart, Inc. is a pending 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization, which provides free legal representation and mental health services to fit mothers and children, who have been subjected to intimate partner violence and have been victimized by the abuses and civil rights violations of the family court system.

Description

The family court system lacks essential domestic violence training and disproportionately favors men over women, allowing alleged abusers to weaponize the court system and use the child as a pawn to perpetuate the torture of their ex partner, who is often punished for speaking out about the abuse. In a 2019 study conducted by George Washington University Law school professor Joan S. Meier, mothers, who reported child abuse, lost custody of their children to their abusers 30 to 50 percent of the time. Custody litigation can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and has depleted many families of the necessary resources to fight and protect the best interests of their children. High conflict custody cases further exacerbated by family court abuses and civil rights violations make finding competent legal counsel with expertise in this area that much more expensive and challenging. The stress of navigating a very dysfunctional family court system corrupted by special interests stacked against the protective mother and the safety and well-being of her child is traumatizing in and of itself, especially when that mother has just escaped an abusive partner and is now faced with the fear and possibility of losing her child to her abusive ex. Counseling and other therapeutic and supportive services by licensed mental health professionals are essential to helping these women validate their experiences, cope, heal, and maintain their emotional and psychological strength while combating a parent's worst nightmare.
