Overview

Mission Statement

The mission of MJE is to end neighborhood violence by empowering mothers and youth to challenge the normalization of violence and become effective catalysts for change in their homes, schools, and communities. By reclaiming the identity of our communities we restore a sense of hope and purpose for children, youth, and adults.


Background Statement

MJE was founded in 2010 by mothers who had lost children to community violence. Our founders sought to share their voice and vision to the fight against violence. In 2013 we developed the ‘You Matter: Personal Leadership Training’, the core of MJE’s educational programming. In 2014, MJE began our Youth Peer Leadership program. In 2014, MJE designed and incorporated our Workforce Readiness Initiative. In 2015, MJE began offering a vision-driven Financial Literacy curriculum to inmates at the Suffolk County House of Corrections to expand our impact and address the needs of young adult inmates coming back into the community. Also in 2015 MJE began offering training to new Boston Police Cadets and Boston EMTs to prepare them when facing individuals dealing with trauma. In 2016, MJE became a Department of Transitional Assistance site and now provides support for single mothers who are DTA recipients. MJE is also an approved Boston Public School services provider and operates our school year youth programming on site at schools in our target communities.

Impact Statement

MJE was selected to form a Parent/Police Partnership advisory group with the Boston Police Commissioner. The goal of this group is to improve community policing by addressing issues of families and engaging the police in community meetings.

MJE became a Department of Transitional Assistance work service site. As such, we are supporting chronically unemployed mothers with services, advocacy, internships, and mentoring.

MJE became an approved provider for the Boston Public Schools. This includes parent engagement training and offering our Youth Peer Leadership programs to students at various BPS sites. MJE has signed MOUs with two Boston Public Schools in our target communities where we are now offering programming on site during after school hours with plans to expand to additional schools in 2017/18.

MJE and the Boston Public Health Commission recently submitted a partnership grant to implement a Marijuana Prevention Program for young people in our target communities.

MJE secured a Shannon Justice Award grant to continue our work in the prison with young men ages 18-25 at South Bay. MJE is preparing these young men for release with personal leadership skills and financial literacy.

MJE was awarded a three-year Health Equity Grant from Brigham and Women’s Hospital to support our work behind-the-bars with incarcerated young mothers. This includes follow up post-release with parenting classes, job skills training, case management, and mentoring.

MJE was awarded the second year of Department of Education After School and Out of School Time funding for the agency’s summer STEM/Service Learning program serving middle schoolers.


Needs Statement

MJE's most pressing need is financial support to build the infrastructure that will allow for the expansion and growth of our violence prevention movement. In order to develop civic leaders who will be catalysts for change in violence prone neighborhoods, we plan expand our Engagement and Education activities. Expansion of activity will require an expansion in staffing. In addition to sustaining the salaries of our current staff of 4 full time employees and one part time employee, we plan to hire a part-time youth coordinator who will allow us to formalize our youth mentoring program by coordinating the schedules of youth and mentors, developing relationships between local colleges and MJE, and supporting the Education Program Manager. We also intend to stipend MJE members who serve as family advocates in our new Family Advocates Program. The family advocates will conduct intake for new members and connect members to agencies and organizations that can help them receive services they need. We are also in need of capacity dollars that will allow us to secure classroom space to host larger training classes. Our current space is limited and requires us to cap classes at 12 women. With adequate classroom space, we can increase the number of women and youth we are able to enroll in our programs.
 

CEO Statement

MJE empowers mothers so they can become the change needed in their community. Many mothers have lost children to violence; empowering them to influence change helps with the healing process of losing a child while creating solutions that prevent violence. Our programs breakdown silos and build unity among women from all backgrounds who share a common purpose to end the violence that threatens the lives of our children.

Board Chair Statement

In 2010, my 17 year old nephew was murdered. With that devastating event, my reality met my destiny. I picked up the phone and started calling the mothers of other homicide victims in Boston. As we came together, we were struck by how normalized violence had become in this city. Somehow, the city was no longer shocked when children were murdered in certain neighborhoods.  We resolved to break the silence of grief and anger that surviving family members suffer. We envisioned a world in which it is never normal or acceptable for a single child to be murdered. Our children’s lives have value and they must have the support of the entire community so that they are ensured a prosperous future.  As word spread, others joined us. 

Since then, we have accomplished a great deal. Youth violence prevention has become a priority for the current Governor’s administration; Boston City Council has passed the Knife Ordinance, awareness of the gravity of children being murdered has grown,and neighbors are participating in playground rallies and marches for our children.Our Monthly Empowerment Meetings have become important forums for education and engagement, and most importantly, mothers of murdered children and other supportive members are being educated and engaged in civic leadership. They are bringing their concerns to government officials, corporations, foundations, and the media.

 

MJE still has work to do in order to build the infrastructure needed to support our growth. We need a director who can translate our vision into action by overseeing the establishment of effective systems for Membership, Education, and Engagement. Though we now have office space, we need space for engagement circles and civic leadership classes – and the staff to implement these activities. We also need to develop our social media and expand our development efforts. Our board is engaging in leadership development and will continue to do so. 

 
The demand is there for MJE to grow. Everyday new opportunities present where we could be of help if we had the infrastructure to support these initiatives. We will continue to work hard with the resources available to us and actively pursue increased revenues for our movement.

Programs

Caregivers Circle

The Caregivers Circle is an advisory group created to provide strategic support to the City of Boston Public Health Commission's Defending Childhood Initiative (DCI). DCI is a Department of Justice initiative with the goals of preventing children’s exposure to violence, mitigating the negative effects of children’s exposure to violence, and increasing public awareness of this issue. The Caregivers Circle integrates the input of caregivers in decisions related to implementation of DCI overall strategies. The role of MJE is to recruit circle members who participate in trainings and discussions of the issues faced by families, to coordinate the Caregivers Circle, and to appoint a representative of the circle to advise the DCI.
Budget  $12,700.00

Population Served Families Females At-Risk Populations
Program Short-Term Success  The success of the Parent-to-Parent Circle will be evaluated by the City of Boston Public Health Commission and the Department of Justice.
Program Long-Term Success 
The Parent-to-Parent Circle's  success will be monitored by the City of Boston Public Health Commission's Defending Childhood Initiative and the Department of Justice.
 
Ultimately, MJE's impact depends upon our members’ ability to educate and mobilize others in their communities, as measured by a transformation in the mindsets and behavior around violence in our target neighborhoods. Measuring change in social norms can be challenging. In an effort to assess our reach and ultimate impact, we will keep track of the reach of our activities, as well as monitor changes in attitudes around violence, and people’s overall experience of their neighborhoods and communities.
Program Success Monitored By  Program success will be monitored by the City of Boston Public Health Commission 's Defending Childhood Initiative and the Department of Justice.
Examples of Program Success  An example of success for the Defending Childhood Initiative is to have all caregivers understand the trauma children suffer when they are exposed to violence and to have a consistent response to this trauma among caregivers. Schools, hospitals, daycare centers, parents, and after-school programs would all have the same understanding with which to help a child who has been traumatized.

Community Engagement and Awareness

Engagement includes public actions and campaigns that challenge the normalization of violence, providing members with opportunities to act as catalysts for change at home and advocates for change in their community.

MJE Monthly Empowerment Meetings engage civic leaders to educate and empower our members through motivational speeches, informative presentations, and educational workshops.  We have learned about the Three Strikes You’re Out bill, the importance of voting, and successfully approaching legislators.  Members have been inspired by the history of women civil rights leaders who came before us.  Most importantly, MJE has  witnessed the power of a supportive community to raise up those mothers whose grief has silenced them.  Each month, mothers are finding the courage to speak up and ask questions and to grow in their ability to lead.

 

ThroughMJE Town Hall Meetings, members have the opportunity to question and hold accountable elected officials and those seeking office.  In 2012, Senate Candidates Brown and Warren met with packed houses at two separate Monthly empowerment Breakfasts to present their views on violence related issues and to listen to the experiences, needs, and suggested solutions of our members.

 At monthlyCoffee Hours, MJE members can meet in small groups with civic leaders and policy makers to discuss the state of their neighborhoods and explore solutions to challenges together.  

 
Recent guests at our engagement activities have included Boston city councilors, Mayor Martin J. Walsh, Boston Police Commissioner William Evans, Senator Sonia Chang Diaz, Deputy Superintendent Gerald Bailey, and President of the Boston Branch of NAACP, Michael Curry.
 
During the summer months, MJE  conducts Playground Rallies rallies at Boston playground where the threat of violence is high.  These rallies spread awareness that violence against our children is unacceptable and that MJE is educating and engaging mothers and other concerned community members in civic leadership to stop the violence.  MJE's presence in the parks highlights the need to take back these open spaces and make them safe for families.  MJE also encourages voter registration at these rallies and has forms available.

Population Served Females Families At-Risk Populations
Program Short-Term Success  Attendance at the meetings is an indicator of their effectiveness - attendance has grown to an average of 40 in attendance to 75.  At the end of each meeting, evaluation forms are distributed for attendees to complete.  Modifications to the meetings are made based on these evaluations.  MJE also encourages voter registration at the Monthly Empowerment Meetings and has forms available.  We also look to the number of people who sign up to be members of MJE.  Less tangible is the transformation we see in mothers who have been crippled by grief.  In a supportive and empowered community, they find their voices and they find a purpose.  Many feel that their activity is a way of carrying their child forward and protecting other children from the same fate. 
Program Long-Term Success  Ultimately, our impact depends upon our members’ ability to educate and mobilize others in their communities, as measured by a transformation in the mindsets and behavior around violence in our target neighborhoods. Measuring change in social norms can be challenging. In an effort to assess our reach and ultimate impact, we will keep track of the reach of our activities, as well as monitor changes in attitudes around violence, and people’s overall experience of their neighborhoods and communities.
Program Success Monitored By  Our plan is to bring in external evaluation consultants to measure the success of our programs.
Examples of Program Success  In 2011, a member of MJE whose son had been murdered by knife violence began to investigate the availability of knives to children in her neighborhood.  She found that large knives were available at corner convenience stores, selling for as little as $10.  Children as young as 10 were able to buy them.  She took her concerns to police who also investigated and verified her findings. A City Councillor introduced the Knife Ordinance and MJE members whose children had been killed by knives told their stories to the Council.  They humanized what had been mere statistics.  In December 2011, the City of Boston Knife Ordinance passed.  This is an example of civic leadership.

MJE Civic Leadership Academy: You Matter Leadership and Personal Development Training

The MJE Civic Leadership Academyis an eight week training program utilizing MJE's You Matter Leadership and Personal Development Curriculum, designed exclusively for MJE during 2013. Program participants acquire the skills and tools needed for engaging their community in dialogue, inquiry, and action as well as the knowledge to educate others who are invested in helping their communities.Participants are guided on a journey of self-exploration, community assessment, envisioning, and networking  toward building stronger, safer communities.

Our goal is to create leaders who can extend the breadth and depth of a movement that brings people out of alienation, silence, intimidation, fear, and apathy into courageous change-making .  Education is a key component to leadership development. Educated citizens have the tools to claim their voices and speak out for their communities.

Budget  $45,000.00

Population Served Families
Program Short-Term Success  Parents and other concerned community members will join MJE in being present in these parks and in expecting that they should be able to enjoy these spaces free from fear.  They will join together to find solutions to the particular problems that their neighborhood faces. 
Program Long-Term Success 
Long-term success would mean playgrounds and parks filled with families enjoying the mild weather, gathering together in community, picnicking on the grass, playing games, and otherwise enjoying the open spaces in ways other neighborhoods can.
 
Ultimately, our impact depends upon our members’ ability to educate and mobilize others in their communities, as measured by a transformation in the mindsets and behavior around violence in our target neighborhoods. Measuring change in social norms can be challenging. In an effort to assess our reach and ultimate impact, we will keep track of the reach of our campaigns, as well as monitor changes in attitudes around violence, and people’s overall experience of their neighborhoods and communities.
Program Success Monitored By  MJE will engage the services of an outside consultant to evaluate our programs.
Examples of Program Success  Our rallies have spread awareness of the need to change our expectations of what is acceptable in our communities.  Young people and adults have joined together to say ,"It's Not OK" that our children are being murdered. Many of those who have attended rallies have joined MJE, expanding our mailing list to over 300 members.

Youth Peer Leadership program

MJE's Youth Peer Leadership program is an out-of-school-time program that provides paid internships to 11-24-year-olds from Roxbury, Dorchester, and Mattapan who are at increased risk of being witnesses to or victims of community violence. We provide trauma-informed leadership training, job skills, engagement in community services, and social/emotional support. Our youth engagement and education efforts change unequal relationships and social patterns that are underlying the causes of violence by empowering youth to be leaders while they also recover from trauma and gain entry into the workforce. Students participate in activities that focus on personal and professional development and gain key life skills such as healthy relationships, conflict resolution, financial literacy, college preparation, writing, and job skills. Programs re-direct youth toward engagement, healthy relationships, and new friends who do not promote risky behaviors.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

MJE’s Strategic Plan calls for a $1.5 million capacity-building fund drive over 3 years to strengthen and sustain our programs and operations. as described above.  Once successful with this capacity building effort by 2015, we'll be better able to educate and engage mothers to reframe their thinking, develop their leadership skills, advocate in and for their communities, and become change-makers in our work to end youth/street violence.

MJE’s work is resident-informed, resident-driven and engages women in the neighborhoods of Dorchester, Roxbury, Jamaica Plain, and Mattapan – communities with high rates of murder and violent crime.

Many of MJE’s members and leaders are mothers who have lost children to violence. Our challenge is to avoid leading with our emotions and focus instead on implementing solutions that will end violence.The enormity of the continued violence requires that we persevere and appreciate the small victories we achieve
 
MJE forges partnerships at the state, city, and local level with organizations and agencies that share our vision and mission. Awareness, education, and engagement take time, our goal is for these activities to transform the mindset that has accepted violence as inevitable in certain neighborhoods to a consciousness that the death of children anywhere is an affront to our humanity.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
