At KC Mothers in Charge, we serve families of victims of homicide in Kansas City. Each week, we call the families we have served over the last 10 years and check in and offer ongoing support. We rely on volunteers to make these family support calls, and are looking for people who are interested in helping us. Training will be provided, as well as an office phone to use.

Mission Statement

At KC Mothers in Charge, our mission is to reduce violent crime through prevention, education and intervention, and to guide and support the families of victims. Our vision is a KC community safe for all, where families are empowered and supported.

Description

  • Hope and Healing Support Program
    In the days, months and years following homicides, KC MIC provides direct services to families of homicide victims, including home visits, assistance with funerals and vigils; weekly check-in phone calls; evidence-informed individual and family therapy; monthly support groups; quarterly meet-and-greets for families to build supportive relationships; and opportunities to participate in anti-violence events.

  • Survivors Will Heal Support Program
    Launched in 2021, Survivors Will Heal serves as a direct response to the growing number of non-fatal shooting victims in the Kansas City metro area. Similar to Hope and Healing, through support group settings and one-on-one counseling opportunities, KC MIC will help those who are personally recovering from the trauma of gun violence to cultivate strategies that prioritize their physical and mental health. The goal is for participants to adopt healthy ways to move forward after experiencing crisis, and in certain cases, to use conflict resolution strategies to quell thoughts of retaliation.
