Tears of a Mother’s Cry was founded by Ms. Millie Brown in 2009. Her journey started in 2007 while working in the surgery department at Johns Hopkins Hospital where she saw numerous deaths of young people, but what impacted her most was seeing the pain and suffering from the Mother’s and families. It was placed on her heart to begin a mother’s cry movement. She left her job in 2016 to work with the mothers and families full-time and she started ‘Tears​ of A Mother’s Cry’.

Our mission is to reach out to these families and show them that there are far more people who care deeply about their loss and let them know they are not alone, they are not forgotten, and we care. By having several events each year, it allows us to support one another by bringing families together.  Tears of a Mother’s Cry serves these families in the following ways:

Mother’s Day event in May
Reunion in the park in July  
Annual picnic in September
Coat drive for families in October
Thanksgiving turkey giveaway in November
Christmas event in December 

Your support is greatly needed so that we can continue these efforts. By providing donations this advocacy will be able to enhance its movement to not only help mothers and their families, but by becoming a community-based organization helping any and all of those who have been affected by violence.
