Description

M.O.M. was birthed with the support

of the Los Angeles Police Department's

77th Precinct, Charlotte

Austin Jordan and a group of concerned

mothers. This group of

mothers searched to find answers

to address the high violent crime

rate in their community. This

organization was formed to fight

crime, change laws and give support

to victims of

violent crime.

Charlotte and mothers armed

with first hand knowledge of

this crippling epidemic called

murder are working to seek

coordinated resources to one

location and assist devastated

murder survivors. Through

caring counselors and a warm

and spiritual environment,

M.O.M. is able to provide a

holistic approach to support

the family in achieving a successful

road to recovery.

A victim herself, Charlotte's

13 year old and only daughter

Jamee and her eldest son

Corey were victims of senseless

murder. Charlotte understands

what is needed to

heal the community
