Mothers In Crisis
Mothers In Crisis, Inc.’s mission statement is: “Mothers In Crisis is committed to linking families and communities together to provide networks of support and encouragement for families to live productive, successful, drug-free lives.”
Mothers In Crisis (MIC) began as a support group for women in April 1991. MIC is a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization that provides prevention, intervention and support services. MIC offers education through experience. By sharing experiences about drugs and alcohol, others can become sensitized to the needs of families ripped apart by addiction. Sensitization leads to solutions and MIC believes key solutions to the drug epidemic are prevention, intervention, and treatment. Everyone working together can make a difference in the lives of families in crisis.

Mothers In Crisis is currently implementing the Sisters In Success (SIS) mentoring program for women between the ages of 18-35 to learn leadership, effective communication, employment training and development skills. The SIS program meets twice monthly. At the meetings the young ladies are equipped with information and education that will enhance their ability to seek, find, and keep gainful employment and to pursue education and training as needed. SIS also deals with issues that can prevent young women from being successful in their lives such as health issues, domestic violence, parenting issues, social skills, and drug and alcohol abuse.
