This is a mutual self-help group, not a therapy group. Hopefully, this group will provide emotional, psychological, and moral support for its members.
To provide ongoing emotional support needed to help parents and other survivors deal with the pain of their loss and facilitate the reconstruction of their lives.
Based on the idea of that grief must be shared, Mothers of Murdered Children was born. It was founded by Andrea Clark in 2011, three months after her son, Darnell, was murdered. MOMC has expanded to include other family members and friends who are survivors. Darnell left a wife and 4 children and that inspired "A Never Forgotten Christmas".
MOMC provides support that is not available through any counselor, police department or the District Attorney's Victims Assistance program. MOMC's support is unique, because the members KNOW first hand what it is to lose a loved one, especially a child to murder. We have self-help groups that meet regularly. The self-help groups provide information about the grief process, the criminal justice system as they pertain to survivors of a homicide victim and allow communication with professionals about the problems faced by those surviving a homicide victim.
