HISTORY OF MOTHERS IN CRISIS:
Mothers In Crisis has been providing services in the Tallahassee/Leon County and surrounding areas for over twenty-nine years. Last official count in 2009, Mothers In Crisis impacted over ten thousand families with approximately 500 per year since then. Mothers In Crisis’ specialization is providing hope to the hopeless.
Mothers In Crisis, which began as a support group for women, grew into a full-service non-profit organization providing community-based prevention, intervention and outpatient substance abuse services.
MIC started out targeting drug and alcohol addiction during the crack-cocaine epidemic. We learned that sharing stories of hope to families ripped apart by addiction led to solutions and everyone working together makes a difference in the lives of families in crisis.
Mothers In Crisis was instrumental in founding the month of April as the National Month of Hope through the National Day Calendar. The inaugural year was 2018. During April National Month of Hope 2020, Mothers In Crisis is continuing to give out HOPEE Awards (Helping Others Practice Enduring Empowerment).
Mothers In Crisis is collecting one-million nickels to support the Hope Campaign while spreading Hope globally. Donate Today Thanks and God Bless!
HOPE stands for (Helping Others Practice Empowerment). In April 2016 in honor of Mothers In Crisis 25th anniversary, MIC received proclamations from the City and County designating every Friday as Hope Universe Day. On Hope Fridays, share hope and help with those in need.
April National Month of Hope is now live on the National Day Calendar Website. #nationalmonthofhope National Day Calendar. As a part of the HOPE Movement Mothers In Crisis rolled out the HOPE Not Hate Campaign encouraging everyone to spread messages of Hope Not Hate every Friday on Hope Universe Day.
